“It’s exhilarating to read how the winners of the Communities that Shine Program have taken iN2L engagement technology to the next level,” says Jack York, iN2L Co-Founder. “We love the power of our technology, but it’s the staff that makes or breaks the experience.

iN2L’s content-driven engagement solution enables purposeful enrichment and nurtures meaningful social connections that prove essential to overall resident satisfaction and well-being.
