Registration for in-person and online Brightspace workshops is now open to instructors, staff, and graduate assistants. All UWindsor courses will be in the Brightspace learning management system (LMS) in Winter 2023; the Centre for Teaching and Learning recommends instructors sign up early for training.
“The LMS implementation team has been working tirelessly to prepare the system and the supports to help instructors and students transition to Brightspace since the new LMS was announced,” says director Erika Kustra.
“With the Brightspace sandboxes opening ahead of schedule for instructors and departmental support staff, now is a great time to attend a workshop ahead of the rush. We want to help all instructors feel comfortable in the new system before the January 2023 start of classes.”
In addition to the synchronous workshop sessions, more training and support resources are available on the dedicated UWindsor Brightspace website, including FAQs, how-to documents, links to Brightspace’s self-paced guided online training and resources, and other help.
Information Technology Services will begin to migrate the last two years of courses without student data from Blackboard into the new LMS later this month.
