TVET Colleges, meet Brightspace

Brightspace is a dynamic learning platform for people that care deeply about ensuring ALL students reach their potential. We know that the impact of COVID-19 on the way that we live, learn, and work is evolving daily. D2L is here to help.

Let's talk

Brightspace + VastraTech + SACPO

In collaboration with our local partner VastraTech and SACPO (South African College Principals Organisation), we are making the Brightspace learning platform available to all educators and students at public TVET Colleges. Starting the 1st May the 50 Public TVET Colleges will go through a two-week implementation project, in groups of 10 colleges. After this initial implementation, Brightspace will be available for use by your teachers and students. By choosing to use Brightspace, students and academic staff will have access to courses that align with the South African curriculum standards, as well as the full communication suite available within the Brightspace learning platform.
