Brightspace LMS

Brightspace is the new Learning Management System (LMS) that the University of Windsor implemented campus-wide in January 2023 and replaced Blackboard Learn. Brightspace is an agile, cloud-based system that offers enhanced accessibility features and a mobile-first design. It has a modern visually organized interface that is clean, easy to navigate, offering tools that support good teaching and interactive learning such as Announcements, Discussions, Quizzes, Assignments, and a Grades tool that calculates and securely displays students’ grades.  

Continuous platform enhancements are delivered monthly by the vendor, D2L, and users can expect minimal service disruptions.
