Global learning technology leader D2L announced that Brightspace has once again been named a CODiE award winner by the Software and Information Industry Association, based in Washington, D.C.
Brightspace is the winner in two categories: Best K-12 Learning Management Solution, and Best Professional Learning Solution for Faculty and Administrative Staff.
The CODiE awards are a peer-recognition programme founded in 1986 to evaluate and promote excellence in the software and information industries. Due to COVID-19, the awards were presented as part of a virtual celebration on May 18 and 19, 2020.
“We are delighted with this news and to receive recognition from peers in the software industry is truly high praise.” said John Baker, President and CEO of D2L. “This back to back win is especially gratifying because it reflects our ongoing commitment to all the stakeholders we work so hard to serve – learners, teachers and staff – and helping them build experiences that they love. Plus, it is a reminder that innovation, like education, never stops. There’s always more to do and ways to improve. On behalf of everyone at D2L, thanks to SIIA for organising the awards once again, especially this year in light of the challenges presented by COVID-19.”
