LMS Implementation Plan

We are pleased to announce that Brightspace by Desire to Learn (D2L) has been selected as the new learning management system for Delaware Technical Community College. In response to our College community needs and feedback, the College selected D2L as the best match for our faculty, student, and administrative goals due to the following factors:

  • Easy to use Brightspace interface
  • Student Success System
  • Insights advanced learning analytics
  • Responsive mobile design
  • Pulse app for students

Transitioning from Blackboard

As we move into this period of transition, Blackboard will continue to be available and supported through the end of the spring 2019 term. CCIT, with support from the Instructional Innovation Network (IIN), will lead the migration and implementation project and will communicate plans and progress with the College community in the coming months. This page shares the most current information regarding the implementation and training timelines.

This is an exciting opportunity for the College to increase our offerings of relevant, responsive, and high-quality education for our students. We encourage full faculty and staff participation as we work together to make this transition over the coming months. If you have questions or comments or would like to get involved, please read our FAQs or contact Anjuli Hendee at ahendee@dtcc.edu.
