We are excited and happy to announce that Bentley will be moving forward with Brightspace as our next-gen modern learning management system (LMS).
Summer 2023 – Phase 2 (Soft Launch)
- All courses offered on Brightspace (except May intensives).
Fall 2023 – Phase 3 (Full)
- All Fall 2023 courses on Brightspace.
Brightspace has many exciting benefits for Bentley faculty and students, including an intuitive easy-to-use interface, personalized learning, collaboration tools integrated into courses, and a mobile-first design.
We are launching a pilot in Spring 2023 in 24 undergraduate and graduate courses. Students enrolled in these respective courses will have access to Brightspace at the start of the Spring 2023 semester. Our general launch will be in Summer 2023, and so students enrolled in summer courses will be using Brightspace to access their courses. Note that May Intensives for Summer 2023 will still be offered on Blackboard.
