Introduction to Brightspace

Come learn about Brightspace! In this training session, we will be taking a tour of Brightspace and showing off some new features we are really excited about. This is a good training to get yourself oriented to the new Learning Management System we will be using at the University of Maine. Unlike our other workshops that get into the nitty-gritty of how to use all the different tools, this training will be focused on providing a general overview so you can navigate through Brightspace with confidence.

Learning Objectives:

  • Navigate to your Brightspace Sandbox and explore the layout and organization of Brightspace

  • Learn about the new features of Brightspace as you think about new and exciting ways to build and offer your courses

  • Review the terms and definitions new to Brightspace and what is different from Blackboard

  • Find training materials and other ways to self-start your exploration
