When Carleton switches over to Brightspace in May 2021, the university will be in good company. Carleton will be using the same Learning Management System (LMS) as other institutions in the National Capital Region; University of Ottawa, Algonquin College, the Ottawa Carleton District School Board, and La Cité all use Brightspace.

Using the same system will make it easier for students, TAs and instructors to move across and among the various educational institutions without having to relearn the LMS.

But it’s not just institutions in the Ottawa area. Brightspace is one of the four leading learning management systems in North America, with a Canadian and international community of users.
