Accessing cuLearn Content 

Your access to previous courses in cuLearn will be maintained throughout 2021 to allow time to review content, such as assignments and grades. cuLearn course data will not be imported to Brightspace but will continue to be archived in cuLearn.

Remember though that 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. If the course you are looking for is not available, please contact your instructor directly regarding access and content retrieval.
