Confused by all the names? Is it D2L, LIVE or Brightspace? D2L is the parent company that most people know. Brightspace is the name of the learning management platform we use (the product). LIVE is what Wilkes named its instance of Brightspace when we first implemented it. You will see the Brightspace branding used on D2L-produced resources and sites, whereas we tend to use the combination of D2L/LIVE. In the end, it all means the same thing for you. 

We trust this additional resource will be useful to you as you continue to enhance your skills over the coming months. Watch for new workshops from OTTL coming soon!
