In early October 2018 a call went out to all DIT staff inviting interested colleagues to take part in pilots which will help shape the Brightspace experience at DIT. Colleagues who are involved in programmes that follow a non-standard academic year were also individually contacted and offered the opportunity to move to Brightspace during the pilot phase.
The response has been tremendous and at this point it looks as though all DIT schools will be represented in the pilots, which is great.
Training for lecturers taking part in the pilots will begin in November and it is expected that the first live Brightspace modules will be ready to go for the start of semester 2 2018-19.
