Are you thinking ahead to your winter 2022 Brightspace course? Whether you’re setting up your first course, or diving in for a second or third time, our Brightspace course setup resources can help.

On the Brightspace Support site you’ll find a Course Setup Guide with a helpful checklist, tips and reminders for your pre-term setup. You can also explore a video overview of all of Carleton’s licensed educational technology tools and a short video tour of the Brightspace interface, along with links to helpful guides and sample courses.

Wondering how other instructors have set up their courses? Watch a Brightspace Instructor Panel Showcase or one of our Welcome to my Brightspace Classroom recordings. You’ll hear directly from your colleagues about what worked for them and what didn’t.

Get to know Brightspace with short video tours

We’ve created a Teaching and Learning Services (TLS) Mediaspace channel for instructors, and a channel for students too, with quick tours of common course tasks in Brightspace.

Our student overview tours give a helpful look at completing a quiz, submitting an assignment or reviewing grades. It’s the perfect resource to share with your students as you head into final exams. There’s also a helpful video tour for TAs to get started in Brightspace ahead of the winter 2022 term.

Explore new training topics to expand your skill set

If you’d like to learn more about the LMS, and are looking for deeper exploration and training, watch one of our workshop recordings, such as Zoom for Brightspace, Brightspace Assignments and Rubrics or  Brightspace Communication and Collaboration. We add new videos regularly, so check back often for more offerings.

Connect with TLS for support

You have more help available for the learning management system than ever before. TLS can suggest resources, provide training and demonstrations, and answer your questions. Request a course consultation or submit your request to the TLS Support Portal and we’ll be in touch!
