Brightspace @ XULA logo

Are you short on time? Do you need help with Brightspace? This introduction to Brightspace can help. In this introductory session, participants will be able to get help with:

  • Navigating Brightspace
  • Uploading syllabus into courses
  • Working with the Classlist
  • Using Brightspace to communicate with students

All participants are asked to watch this short introduction video before attending the quick start session.

You will be able to use one of the computers in our computer lab for the training. However, feel free to bring your own laptop, tablet, and/or smart phone so you can explore and build content in the Brightspace environment!

Also, please feel free to bring course material that you would like to upload into Brightspace. The course material should be on a USB drive or other digital format.

Sandbox courses are available. Fill out this form to request a Brightspace Sandbox course.
