About Desire2Learn or D2L
The man named John Baker made Desire2Learn or D2L in 1999. Everything started when his engineering class was getting challenged to look at the world in a new perspective by throwing some questions that had never been asked before by anyone.
At that time, Baker was aware that technology was on fire but he knew that his university was left behind. The question that he had was about how people could use technology to transform learning. He always thinks that ensuring that everyone gets the access to the best possible learning opportunities is one of the most important things people can do to help each other. Thanks to his mind, right now, D2L is teaming up with people all around the world to provide the learners that was hard to imagine.
