There are only a couple of weeks left until all Carleton courses launch on Brightspace. On May 6, Brightspace will officially replace cuLearn as Carleton’s new Learning Management System (LMS). The new LMS will provide several key advantages, including a faster, more reliable system and 24/7 technical support.
You can log in to Brightspace at brightspace.carleton.ca using your MC1 credentials and explore the new interface ahead of the official launch. Exploring the LMS on your own is a great way to build your confidence and familiarity.
D2L provides on-demand technical support for Brightspace 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. You’ll be able to get answers to your questions anytime via email, chat and phone. If you need support for tools that integrate into Brightspace, such as Zoom, BigBlueButton, H5P and Kaltura/Mediaspace, submit your request to the TLS Support Portal.
Teaching and Learning Services (TLS) has developed a Brightspace TA Support website, where you can find documentation on how to navigate and use the system. TLS will also be offering consultations for TAs looking for one-on-one assistance.
If you’re wondering how to begin with the new LMS, consider signing up for a TLS Brightspace workshop. Several TA-focused training sessions will run in May, covering the basics, assignments, quizzes and discussions:
