Brightspace Drop-in Session
Are you short on time? Do you need help with Brightspace? Do you want a Brightspace refresher? If you have attended an Introduction to Brightspace training session or you are familiar with Brightspace, you should stop by this Drop-in session to get your specific questions answered.
Faculty can receive individualized help during this Brightspace Drop-in session. This session's format is open, providing an opportunity for faculty to receive one-on-one help with Brightspace. You can get help on topics such as uploading files; creating modules and adding content; setting up discussion forums; creating links to webpages or online resources; setting up online quizzes and surveys; using release conditions to keep students on track; setting up your grade book; and copying content from one course to another.
After participating in the Drop-in session, instructors will be able to:
- Solve problems to the specific questions they brought to the session
- Locate Brightspace help and resources on the CAT FooD blog
