Course building support

Ask for course building support for your course by filling out this form.

We know that transitioning from Blackboard to Brightspace could potentially cost you a time investment. To reduce this as much as possible, the Local Brightspace Support can assist you in building your course within Brightspace. This will be focused on copying, organizing and structuring the course rather than building content of the course. To initiate this, you can ask for course building support by filling in the form below. Please contact your Project Coordinator if you have questions about this.
