I’ve spent my career being an ally and an advocate for students with disabilities. And one of the things that I learned really quickly and pretty early on is that when you talk about accessibility, the way that you need to situate it is that it is a journey, it is not a destination. You’re never done.

  • 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.
