Two Learning Leaders Will Work Together to Give Best-In-Class Support

Kitchener, Waterloo, Aug. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global learning technology leader D2L today announced that it is entering into a strategic partnership with FL Worldwide, which offers master classes and certifications in flipped and mastery Learning to K12, higher education and corporate trainers around the globe.

D2L has selected FL Worldwide as the preferred provider of mastery learning and flipped learning professional development for the Brightspace community. The partnership supports D2L’s new mastery enhancements to the Brightspace LMS.

“We are delighted to join with D2L to provide the kind of 360-degere training and support required for world-class mastery learning,” said Jon Bergmann, co-founder of FL Worldwide. We find the Brightspace LMS uniquely well-suited for mastery learning and we are pleased to help schools learn how to achieve the full promise of marrying the right technology with powerful pedagogy.”

FL Worldwide offers self-paced courses in English, Spanish and Chinese — online and on-demand. Its industry-leading certification programs are based on the Academy of Active Learning Arts and Sciences global standards, developed by 100 delegates from 49 countries. FL Worldwide’s courses and certifications are distinguished by its master class model. Each course brings in 20 to 30 of the world’s most experienced practitioners to present the principles of mastery and flipped learning. 

Under the strategic partnership, D2L users worldwide will be able to access basic and advanced training in mastery learning and flipped learning at D2L’s Learnstore in addition to technical training already offered by D2L.

“We’re pleased and thrilled to be working with FL Worldwide to deliver an even better learning experience to more people in more places than ever before,” said John Baker, President and CEO of D2L. “As partners in education — and by unlocking the full potential of the new mastery enhancements in Brightspace — we will be changing the way the world learns, together.”
