D2L Updates

Brightspace by D2L logo

You will begin to see "Brightspace" branding when navigating Clarion's and D2L's faculty or student resource pages. The learning management system that Clarion University has always called Desire2Learn or D2L, has been re-branded as Brightspace. The company now officially refers to itself as D2L (rather than Desire2Learn) and Brightspace encompasses the company's full suite of products that make up their integrated learning platform.

You will see "D2L Brightspace" and the Brightspace logo in training and informational materials. More information can be found in the Brightspace Community
