WHO IS BRIGHTSPACE TRAINING FOR?
You! We think we have something for every need, with offerings for individuals and groups, private and public, and live and self-paced. Whether you’re an instructor, course developer, course manager or system administrator we offer learning that will engage and inspire.
WHAT ABOUT THE BRIGHTSPACE TEACHING AND LEARNING CERTIFICATE PROGRAM? IS IT A GOOD FIT FOR ME?
If you want to get the most out of Brightspace instructor tools, this program is for you! Instructors, course facilitators, teachers, administrators, Instructional Designers, and Courseware Developers who want to know how to maximize the potential of Brightspace courses will find value in the program. Still not sure? Review our course agendas to see what we cover in each course.
DO I NEED TO BE A D2L CLIENT TO TAKE THE CERTIFICATE PROGRAM?
Not at all! If you are a partner, someone with general interest in educational software, or someone who is preparing to use D2L in your job, these courses will give you deep product knowledge so you can be successful in those endeavors.
WHAT DOES FACILITATION LOOK LIKE IN THE BRIGHTPSACE CERTIFICATE PROGRAM COURSES?
The facilitator will answer questions via discussion forums (they may respond in a variety of ways: video, written posts, or links to content). The facilitator will provide support with troubleshooting and questions about the Brightspace tools. You are not required to be online at a specific time for the facilitator.
DO I NEED ACCESS TO THE BRIGHTSPACE PRODUCTS TO TAKE THESE COURSES?
Access to a test course or “sandbox” is strongly recommended to get the most out of your training. How you get access is based on the type of training you are participating in: Private training takes place in the customer's environment, generally a sandbox course will be created for you there. Certificate training includes access to a sandbox course. Guided Training does not require a sandbox course. All of your practice can be done without leaving the program!
WHAT EQUIPMENT / HARDWARE IS REQUIRED TO TAKE THESE WORKSHOPS?
For all courses, to participate in the Brightspace Learning Environment, you will need a desktop or laptop computer with a modern browser (such as Chrome or Firefox) and a reliable high-speed internet connection. To see if your browser meets the minimum requirements, you can run a system check by visiting the Learning Center System Check tool with the computer and browser you intend to use. Virtual Training will also need audio equipment so that you can communicate with the Trainer. Either a phone (preferably a headset or hands-free phone so you don’t have to hold it to your ear for hours), or speakers and a microphone are all you need. Onsite Private Training requires facilities suitable for learning a web platform: a room or computer lab with computers for participants, a projector and screen, and a reliable high-speed internet connection for everyone.
WHAT LANGUAGES ARE THE TRAINING WORKSHOPS OFFERED IN?
Certificate Training is offered currently in English only. Private Training is offered in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese. Guided training is offered in English and Dutch, with plans to include other languages in the future.
