D2l Fusion, This Year, It’s Personal

Experiences, Networking and Learning

Join us for immersive experiences, networking and activities. Plus, a chance to win some fantastic prizes


Fusion Hangouts will incorporate some elements of wellness, but we’re also bringing back our morning wellness activities such as Jogging with John Baker and Yoga with D2Lers Martha and Christa. Learn more (and sign up to participate in the morning jog or a yoga session) here.

Participate in the Fusion Challenge by completing tasks and activities listed in the Fusion app (coming soon). Every challenge you complete earns you points and places you on the leaderboard. You could even win some awesome prizes!
Fusion attendees will work together to create a mosaic of images that represent them, with individual pieces designed for and incorporated into a large artwork for donation to the Boston Children’s Hospital. Donated artwork helps transform waiting areas, corridors and hospital rooms into bright and inviting places that promote the well-being of patients and their families. Come be a part of it!


Visit the Fusion Lounge to network with peers and connect with D2Lers. You’ll see product demos, meet with D2L subject matter experts, hang out in the Champions Lounge and connect with other Fusion attendees. You might even pick up some D2L swag!

Following John Baker’s welcome keynote on Wednesday, July 20, we will host a reception to further welcome everyone to Fusion 2022! Attendees can mingle, enjoy a refreshing drink and check out the Partner Ecosystem.

After a full day of Fusion sessions and activities on Thursday, July 21, we will host our signature evening event.

Guests will be shuttled over to the Museum of Science for drinks, appetizers and entertainment, and will take in the view along the iconic Charles River.

Networking opportunities are one of the best parts of Fusion. Starting the afternoon of Wednesday, July 20—with topic-based Affinity Networking meet-and-greets for Competency-based Learning, Course Quality Improvement, D2L Site Admins and Instructional Technology and Design—networking events will be happening all throughout Fusion. We’ve planned all sorts of sessions and activities, so you can meet and connect with your peers—and have fun while you’re at it!

Each day at Fusion will feature these fun, 15-minute activities led by D2L customers and staff. Fusion Hangouts are a great opportunity to have some fun and take a breather with your peers. We’re really excited about this year’s Hangout activity lineup!

Come experience a variety of interactive labs hosted by D2L’s Accessibility, Community and User Experience (UX) teams.
