Desire2Learn is committed to an open platform that encourages both a variety of innovative learning solutions and customized utilities to streamline an organization's processes. Whether you are a team looking to create your own extensions or seeking a particular tool from one of our partners or even looking for a completely custom development project, we have resources and support for you.
Desire2Learn's software provides a rich set of APIs with a mature access control system to allow organizations to build custom, complimentary solutions.
Beyond the technology, our extensibility framework includes open documentation, dedicated Desire2Learn team members and tools to simplify the development process.
Example applications showcase the capabilities of the Valence extensibility technology. By providing the source code for the samples, we enable our developer community to customize and troubleshoot the code within their own environments. The samples are not part of the supported product suite. However, we offer development support through a variety of channels.
