brightspace pilots

Staff and students taking part in the pilot are now actively using Brightspace. In the eight or so days since the start of the semester on 28 January, 73 staff and 1,176 students have logged in and all is going well so far. We're ironing out some minor teething problems but generally reaction has been very positive.

One lecturer has said "Students have commented on how much nicer and easy to use Brightspace is and that was without me asking them their opinion. They were positively surprised by it."

To see who's taking part from your School or College please see the pilot page.
