Frequently Asked Questions

  • We currently partner with 570 universities and colleges, including the University of Huddersfield, the University of Suffolk, TU Delft in The Netherlands, and the University of Cape Town.

  • You don’t have to sacrifice any of your current tools to use Brightspace—it’s an entirely plug-and-play LMS. We were the first commercial LMS certified for 1EdTech Basic Learning Tools Interoperability and 1EdTech Learning Information Services (LIS), and we currently lead the industry in 1EdTech Global certifications. With Brightspace, it’s possible to seamlessly mix and match multiple applications within your institution’s digital learning ecosystem. Our commitment to 1EdTech Global product certifications and open standards also means you get more choice and flexibility to connect Brightspace with thousands of products to create a seamless user experience and enhance data privacy.

  • Moving existing courses in your current LMS to Brightspace isn’t difficult. Our bulk migration tools make it easy to move hundreds—or hundreds of thousands—of courses in a single batch. That migration process can efficiently run behind the scenes of your system at night—with no manual effort required. Additionally, you’ll have the support of our change management experts, who can make switching to Brightspace a breeze.
