From the Ontario Ministry of Education:
The Ontario Ministry of Education’s Virtual Learning Environment Request for Bid (RFB 1135/OSS_00546524) has been cancelled. The Ministry plans on issuing a revised VLE RFB later this year. The Ministry will be working with the current vendor to ensure school boards have uninterrupted access to the VLE until a procurement process is completed.
The Ministry is committed to school boards having ongoing access to the VLE, while also honouring Ontario Public Service directives around an open and competitive procurement process.Until this is resolved, my own recommendation would be to develop your resources outside of D2L so they can be used in any LMS, including D2L if desired (pardon the pun).
