One platform for all learning

Brightspace is a leading learning management system not just for students but also for at-scale professional learning and skills training.

Deliver engaging programs to teachers more efficiently, with fewer resources, while easily demonstrating evidence of learning. When teachers and staff share the same learning platform as students, the familiarity can enhance the utilization and adoption of Brightspace and foster new ideas for how technology can support them to be more effective and improve student outcomes.

Professional Learning Communities

Brightspace can be used to create Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), collaborative communities where teachers work collectively to reflect on teaching practices and learn by doing. Teachers can work together, sharing with each other via Discussions, Video Assignments, peer review and more.

Offer a catalog of professional learning content

Create a district or statewide catalog of courses based on pedagogy and skills that teachers can self-enroll in to build their personal learning and growth pathways. Data analytics can track enrollment, progress, and completion to award certification or otherwise recognize self-learning and the skillsets in your teacher workforce.

Lack the time or resources required to develop your own content? Leverage prebuilt, interactive professional learning courses right within the Brightspace platform.

Easily manage and review programs

Manage enrollment in courses quickly and confidently. Create teacher learning groups based on attributes (i.e. first-year teachers, science teachers, etc.) so that appropriate learning can be assigned automatically as well as manually. A dashboard provides an at-a-glance view of district or statewide activity, including courses assigned, completed, or pending, and also allows you to actively manage enrollments all in one place. Use data to identify trends and inform what additional learning material is needed.

Foster change in practice through teacher engagement

Not all teachers learn the same. Provide differentiated experiences using conditional release and custom learning paths. Offer authentic learning experiences (collaborative learning, peer feedback, reflective learning) and provide stackable micro-credentials to engage teachers in building on their skills.
