This research project investigated D2L Brightspace (online learning platform)and whether Ryerson students considered it effective. Students were surveyed with the expectation of determining what they did and did not like about D2L features and then asked for their overall rating as to whether they believed D2L was an effective platform. Out of 93 respondents, 89.2% rated the platform as effective.

Future research could be to work directly with Ryerson and/or D2L to further expand on student suggestions and feedback.
