Brightspace is a comprehensive Learning Management System (LMS) that helps engage students through technology. At this time, all CGPS courses are delivered and accessible through the Brightspace LMS. The major components of each course are already built-in Brightspace by the CGPS Instructional Design Services team, allowing faculty to focus on delivering instruction and facilitating student engagement. As a result, CGPS instructors need only become proficient in certain features and functionalities of Brightspace.
This section covers how to use those specific tools and suggests where to find more information for those who wish to build their Brightspace knowledge.
Course Personalization introduces instructors to personalizing your Brightspace experience, whether through the use of a profile image or the creation of engaging course announcements.
