SUNY Digital Learning Environment (DLE) Overview

It’s official: Desire2Learn’s (D2L) Brightspace will be the learning management system (LMS) selected and supported by SUNY going forward. Brightspace will be the foundation along with related tools for instruction and student support for a new Digital Learning Environment (DLE) that will be the platform for SUNY Online courses, as well as all campus online, face-to-face, hybrid, HyFlex (dual-delivery), flipped classroom, and other courses. SUNY plans to work with all campuses to bring them onto the new platform, in order to provide a consistent environment for student learning across the SUNY system.

As a result, Purchase College, SUNY is implementing Brightspace as our new LMS. The College will be transitioning from our current LMS, Moodle, to Brightspace starting with the Fall 2023 semester. The last term using Moodle is Summer 2023.
