D2L Brightspace workshops

Throughout the summer, there are virtual workshops held via WebEx, each designed to help faculty and staff become acquainted with Brightspace. Workshops are:

Brightspace Drop-in Help Sessions: Held weekly from noon to 1 p.m. on Mondays throughout the summer, this session is designed for instructors to ask questions and get help in an open-lab environment. 

Transition course materials from Blackboard: Learn about the course migration process, the pros and cons of migrating your course versus rebuilding your course, and what to expect once the course appears in Brightspace.

Brightspace Basics:  A flipped workshop where attendees are invited to review the workshop materials in advance and join the session to ask questions and seek demonstrations.  Content will cover organizing your course content, creating assignments and quizzes, setting up your gradebook, and other commonly asked about topics.  This session combines what was previously Brightspace Essentials and Brightspace Gradebook.
