One-on-One Instruction

Brightspace @ XULA logo

Are you short on time? Do you want a Brightspace refresher? Do you want to get help with those nagging Brightspace questions from the comfort of your office or home? If you have attended an Introduction to Brightspace training session or you are familiar with Brightspace, you should attend this virtual 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.

To get the most out of the Drop-in Session, you should be familiar with navigating in Brightspace. If you are not familiar with navigating in Brightspace, you should review the recaps from past Brightspace Training sessions before attending the Drop-in session. Here is a list of the training recaps:

**Brightspace Tip #23 has additional/updated training information on the Grades Tool.
