External Application Integrations in Brightspace

Instructors frequently rely on third party tools outside of Brightspace to support teaching and learning in their courses.  In many cases it is possible to integrate these tools into Brightspace to give students and instructors a more seamless experience by sharing data including credentials, content links, rosters, and grades.  

Review Process

To ensure the integrity of the learning management system and compliance with federal regulations, all third party tools must be vetted prior to integration.  The approval process includes a review of technical compatibility, accessibility, security, and a check for financial risks to students if they must enter payment information. If the tool is funded by an academic unit, the Procurement office will also be involved to ensure purchases are made in accordance with the University's rules.  The time to complete an integration depends on the technical complexity of the task and vendor compliance.  Please allow 3 months lead time when requesting a new integration.   All integrations are subject to approval by the Purdue System Brightspace Change Management Board.  The process is represented in the figure below.
