This Course Setup Guide was created for instructors to assist them with their Brightspace course setup at the start of term. Completing the tasks on this guide will help ensure that the Brightspace course has the foundational elements of a successful learning environment.  For instructions, or more information on each task, visit the Brightspace Instructor Support Site. If you’re looking for video tours, visit the TLS Brightspace Channel for Instructors and for Students.

NOTE: If you are teaching multiple sections of the same course, and hope to merge all sections into one course shell, please be sure to submit a course merge request prior to the start of the course. You’ll need to submit this request prior to the start of your course. Once course activities have begun, courses can no longer be merged without a loss of student data.
