Our new VLE - and a great opportunity to rethink blended and online education at TU Dublin - City Campus!

Replacing webcourses/Blackboard from August 2019

‌‌Following an extensive consultation, evaluation and tendering process we are delighted to announce that DIT's new virtual learning environment is Brightspace!

Go-live date: August 2019 - Follow the project on this website and on Twitter at #VLE4TUDUBLINCC

D2L Brightspace is used extensively in the US and Canada, and it is now coming to TU Dublin - City Campus.  TU Delft has recently undergone a similar (and successful) move from Blackboard to Brightspace, and University College Dublin have also chosen Brightspace as their new VLE and are just a short way ahead of TU Dublin - City Campus in the change process.
