Currently we use the Brightspace (by D2L) learning management system for our online and on-campus courses. We are beginning a migration to the Canvas learning management system which will be completed by Summer 2019. These learning management systems enable students to engage in online classroom activities through a web browser.
Through Brightspace, professors can make class materials available to students via the Internet. Students can communicate with classmates by sending email and posting class or group messages through electronic Discussions. Some instructors use the online testing capability within the platform to reduce or eliminate the need for paper tests. Some instructors use the online file submission capabilities so that students may submit assignments electronically without the need for printing them. In short, Brightspace can provide a substitute for most typical classroom activities.
Each student and faculty member has a Brightspace account which is protected by a username and password so each user has access to the proper groups, materials and activities. Brightspace tracks all user activity within the system. All courses at Rose State College have an associated Brightspace course site whether they are considered online or not. Student clubs and organizations may use Brightspace as well if they wish to have an online community space.
