There are less than two weeks until all Carleton courses launch on Brightspace. As of May 6, 2021, Brightspace will officially replace cuLearn as Carleton’s new Learning Management System (LMS).

Brightspace will provide several key advantages, including a faster, more reliable system and 24/7 technical support.

Get to Know Brightspace 

Learning new technology is partly about exploring the tool for yourself. You can log in to the system at using your MC1 credentialsVisit Teaching and Learning Services’ Brightspace channel to watch a Brightspace tour from a student perspective and a guide on how to complete a quiz in the new system. More videos are in production and will be available soon. 

Accessing cuLearn Content 
Direct access to cuLearn will be maintained throughout 2021 to allow time to review student content, such as assignments and gradesThis data will not be imported to Brightspace but will be archived in cuLearn. 

As always, direct access to past courses in cuLearn is dependent on whether the instructor has kept the course visible. Course access, whether in cuLearn or Brightspace, is at the discretion of the instructor. This means that while you may be able to access and log in to the cuLearn system, previous courses may not be available if the instructor has turned the course off. If the course you are looking for is not available, please contact your instructor directly regarding access and content retrieval.
