Details

Brightspace is a comprehensive, web-based Learning Management Solution produced by Desire2Learn (D2L). The Brightspace learning platform delivers a personalized learning experience for users across the globe.

Brightspace is a cloud platform, meaning that there’s no software to buy or update. All updates are handled remotely, behind the scenes by a crack team of IT specialists. Spend less time worrying about servers or hardware requirements, and more time making the best possible educational program… all thanks to the Brightspace team!

The designers of Brightspace focused on creating a platform that is built on three foundational pillars: ease of use, flexibility, and intelligence.

Ease of Use: By creating a platform that makes it easy for instructors to design and create courses, generate and upload content, and grade assignments with a minimum of fuss, Brightspace has created an instructional environment that allows its users to focus on teaching and learning critical material.

Brightspace is optimized for use on mobile devices, and can be accessed through any Internet enabled device. If you have learners with special needs or accessibility issues, you'll be glad to know that Brightspace has been designed to make interactions as simple and accessible as possible.

Flexibility: Instructors should be able to teach the way they want to teach—period! Brightspace provides support for in-line collaboration and the use of extensive multimedia. Further, instructors can customize content, assessments, and even the interface to create the optimal learning environment. And Brightspace features seamless integration with third-party tools to make life easier for instructors and admins all over the world.

Intelligence: Brightspace ships with built-in analytics and customizable reports allowing instructors administrators to track and analyze the performance of learners either individually or in groups. The platform also uses automatic notifications to alert you if any individual or group drops below a critical level or excels unexpectedly.
