Brightspace Learning Management System

Learning Management System (LMS) Transition

Binghamton University has transitioned from Blackboard to a new Learning Management System (LMS), Brightspace by Desire2Learn (D2L). This decision was made in collaboration with faculty and students over a two-year period. 

Visit the Brightspace announcements page for regular updates and information on how to prepare for your transition to Brightspace and visit the LMS Pilot page for more information on the decision-making process.

We understand that this is another change in uncertain times. However, this is one change that will provide you with greater flexibility in dealing with today’s digital learning challenges. Brightspace is cloud-based, mobile optimized and designed for collaboration, providing an improved learning experience for students and instructors alike with its intuitive, responsive user interface.

We are hopeful that instructors will take advantage of the variety of training opportunities available when preparing their courses.

When instructors wish to use past content from Blackboard, courses are simple to migrate with only a few required adjustments. See "How can I move myCourses (Blackboard) content into my Brightspace course?" on the FAQs page
