"D2L's Brightspace is a digital learning platform that helps schools, universities, colleges and enterprise," according to a news release.

"D2L's mission is to transform the way the world learns and this collaboration with AWS is a significant milestone in that journey," said John Baker, D2L president and CEO, in a prepared statement. "Leveraging this cloud infrastructure, we can put even more effort into further innovating our award-winning LMS. Our customers can trust that their valuable data will be stored and delivered with industry-leading reliability and security — a promise we have delivered on for the past 17 years."
