Faculty members of the Brightspace Steering Committee invited to participate in a focused, advanced sandbox with faculty enrolled in two courses as Learners and two coursers as Instructors to track for glitches & questions.
In May, workshops and training resources will be available to help faculty explore and prepare to use Brightspace. A dedicated mini-website to help support the transition is launched.
Selection of Summer Pilot participants for Summer I and II.
The Summer Pilot of Brightspace begins. Faculty that have volunteered will be using Brightspace to support their course. Others will continue to use Blackboard. A dedicated MMC Brightspace support group can be contacted via email here.
All faculty will have access to Brightspace. Blackboard courses from Spring 2020- Spring 2021 will exist in a reservoir of data on Brightspace and available to faculty.
Evaluation and feedback from Faculty and Students of the Summer Pilot to be collected and analyzed.
