VLE? D2L? Brightspace? LMS? What does it all mean?

So many terms for the same thing.

VLE - Virtual Learning Environment. This is what the Ministry calls D2L. They cal it the virtual learning environment because it might not always be D2L. There will always be a virtual learning environment with these same features, but as products change so could D2L.

Brightspace - Brightspace is the new name for the product we use (D2L). D2L - is the company name.

LMS - is a generic term for Learning Management Systems. Things such as Brightspace by D2L, Moodle and Blackboard are all learning management systems.
