A learning management system for the classroom and beyond.

We know that change is hard. And we know the fear that comes along with incorporating online learning, that’s why we’ve made our platform as easy and engaging as possible. So, when start of the semester rolls around. No stress. End-of-term exams? No sweat. We’re here to help your institution’s high-quality liberal arts education thrive both inside and outside the classroom.

Expect high-quality learning experiences

Expectations of education have changed – learners, instructors, and employers are expecting modern learning experiences that are mobile-friendly, personalized, and support their diverse needs. This means institutions need to have the flexibility to adapt to the changing needs.

Your online learning environment can go hand in hand with your in-person seminars and labs. Lean on this virtual space to maintain a sense of community outside the classroom while also upholding the high quality of your institution’s education, so that student satisfaction remains high all around.

A learning management system (LMS) like Brightspace can enhance the unique learning experience that already exists at your institution. Facilitate interdisciplinary exposure, engage students in co-construction, share rich and interactive course content, and collaborate with other institutions all in one centralized spot.
