Carleton’s new LMS, Brightspace, has lots of new features to get excited about. Each month, we’ll highlight a different Brightspace feature and show how it can help you transform your teaching.

During the LMS review, the Carleton teaching community asked for a more straightforward gradebook, and Brightspace delivers.

The Brightspace gradebook has an intuitive setup process and even has a setup wizard to help you get started. Grade items are seamlessly added to the gradebook either directly within the grades screen, or as you add activities and tasks in the course. Advanced functions like calculated grades and extra credit are available and easy to set up. We’re looking forward to sharing this simplified gradebook setup with you when we transition to Brightspace in May 2021!

Don’t forget to check back next month for details about another feature and updates about the transition from cuLearn to Brightspace. In the meantime, you can visit our Brightspace website for the latest information.
