PORTLAND COMMUNITY COLLEGE TRANSFORMS WITH D2L SUPPORT
Kitchener, Waterloo, July 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global learning technology leader D2L partnered with longtime client Portland Community College (PCC) to help them thrive during the shift to remote learning in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
PCC is the largest institution of higher education in Oregon, enrolling more than 60,000 full and part-time students annually. The college includes the state’s largest city, Portland – the most rapidly growing population in the state. PCC aims to support students by focusing on equitable access, economic development and sustainability, diversity, equity and inclusion.
"Brightspace allowed HEP students to virtually access additional services in support of the class and individual educational needs and objectives,” said Beto Espindola, HEP Director at PCC. “We would not have been able to enrich the student experience without D2L's flexibility and support."
“Building off of the excitement andenergy generated by our annual Fusion conference, we’re celebrating our customers and the ways in which they are changing the world,” says April Oman, Senior Vice President, Customer Engagement at D2L. “It has been our mission from the beginning at D2L to break down educational barriers, and that’s just what we’re doing through our partnership with Portland Community College. We are proud to continue to support PCC as they harnessed the challenges of the pandemic and used it to their advantage to build even more resiliency in their institution."
