Serves Learners Today,
Evolves With You Tomorrow
Brightspace is packed with features to help you digitise, optimise and transform the learning experience.
Today’s tech-savvy learners expect modern learning experiences that offer maximum choice and flexibility—even in face-to-face courses.
Give them what they need to succeed.
Keep the learning experience engaging by adding content using the Brightspace Editor or by linking to Google Drive, One Drive, web links, videos, external learning activities, and more. An intuitive interface and built-in templates make it easy for educators to design courses and create content aligned to outcomes.
Encourage learners to share thoughts with their peers in Discussions. Set up forums and topics for them to ask questions, discuss course content and assignments, and work together in assigned groups and sections.
Connect curriculum or course expectations to learning activities, assess learners against those expectations, and view progress over time.
Record videos and add them anywhere the Brightspace Editor is available. To help ensure everyone can learn without barriers, closed captions are automatically created.
An industry-leading mobile experience supports learners on any device through a responsive design that adapts to any screen size. Plus, mobile apps that optimise common tasks are available.
Award-winning accessibility features make it easy for learners to navigate tools using assistive technologies. Educators are empowered to support every learner by ensuring conformance through the Accessibility Checker, implementing quiz accommodations, granting special access, or adding release conditions based on individual needs.
Personalise learning and make smarter teaching decisions backed by data. Save time by automating tasks and boost learner engagement.
Make use of the tools that can help improve student outcomes.
Gradebook and Mastery View
Set up a grading system for your course and connect it to your learning activities in the Gradebook. View and understand the overall level of achievement of learners related to each outcome being taught in a course with Mastery View.
Create rubrics at the organisation, department, or course level (or use existing ones) to help streamline your grading workflow.
Advanced Analytics and Reporting in Performance+
Interact with your data by using Insights Adoption, Course and Learner Engagement, and Assessment Quality dashboards as part of our Performance+ package. Create reports, visualisations, and communicate results effectively across your institution/organisation with the Insights Report Builder.
Predictive analytics and visual diagnostics in our Performance+ add-on package can help educators identify at-risk learners in a course and take action to help them improve.
Expose learners to multiple perspectives by having them give and receive feedback on their peers’ Video Assignments.
Issue sharable merit-based badges and certificates as learners progress through learning materials. This form of inspirational recognition does not contribute to a final grade but acknowledges accomplishments and progress throughout a course or program.
Implement advanced learning modalities to further personalise the experience. From mastery-based learning to competency-based models, Brightspace supports the most effective online or blended learning approaches.
Deliver a modern education that suits every learner.
Automate reminders to provide a helpful nudge to keep learners on track and inspire them to reach their full potential.
Create custom learning paths through your course by automatically releasing enrichment or remedial content based on learner achievement.
Easily distribute updated versions of courses to any LMS. Manage access licenses, collect meaningful analytics, and support a seamless learner experience.
Empower learners to capture photos or videos of their learning as it happens, record their thoughts and reflections, and then share them with instructors. Learners can manage their Portfolio year after year to demonstrate growth over time tied to their learning outcomes.
Annotate document submissions inside your course without having to download the file. Provide inline contextual feedback on assignment submissions such as comments, free-hand drawing, shapes, and more.

Hear What Our Customers Have to Say
“The D2L Brightspace platform has allowed us to make a e-learning personalised and accessible for all our learners and partners. We’ve been able to share resources and experiences which has had a positive impact across the sporting system, as well as saving time and costs. A particular benefit has been the ability to give partners their own identity through logos and templates in their own site, while still being part of the one learning site for sport in Scotland.”Sportscotland
