Desire2Learn, the 2011 Microsoft Worldwide Education Partner of the Year

Filed under: Miscelleaneous SQL — Michael J. Swart @ 5:10 pm

I don’t often talk much about what I do at my job, but I wanted to break that rule in this post.

I work for Desire2Learn, a Canadian company that (among many other things) provides e-learning solutions for Colleges and Universities. This week Microsoft announced that Desire2Learn won the Partner of the Year award for Worldwide Education.

From the press release:

“Microsoft is pleased to recognize Desire2Learn’s commitment to education customers within the Public Sector by awarding them Education Partner of the Year,” said Anthony Salcito, vice president of Worldwide Education at Microsoft. “The Desire2Learn┬« Learning Environment is a complete web-based suite of easy-to-use tools and functionality built exclusively on Microsoft Windows and SQL Server, plus integration with Live@edu. The scalability of their solution provides Desire2Learn with the ability to connect schools and organizations of all types, and to provide a borderless environment in which to teach and learn – today more than six million learners worldwide reap the benefits of Desire2Learn’s applications.”

I’m proud to be part of that team and I wish Desire2Learn a big congratulations. Way to go guys!!


  1. Sounds like a really cool company! I almost took a position with Cengage’s e-learning division right out of college, so I guess we would have been competitors;)
