D2L Ltd. ("Desire2Learn"), a leader in providing innovative learning solutions, today announced that Northeastern Illinois University has chosen Desire2Learn Learning Suite as the primary platform for its blended learning environment. The institution is currently scheduled to migrate all of its courses to the Desire2Learn environment by the Fall 2013 semester.
Northeastern Illinois University is an urban commuter school with a diverse student population. In addition to traditional-aged college students, many students are mature and have significant family or work responsibilities outside of the classroom. The student population at Northeastern Illinois University presents challenges that technology such as the Desire2Learn Learning Suite can help address. Desire2Learn ePortfolio is a powerful user-centered application that allows learners to store, organize, reflect on and share items that are integral to their learning experience. Northeastern Illinois University students may include documents, graphics, audio files, presentations and more within their ePortfolios to ensure that knowledge, achievements, and reflections with advisors, employers, or peers are never more than a few clicks away.
