D2L Brightspace Announcement

Brightspace is getting a new look on June 6

Good news! Our Learning Management System is getting a facelift! Starting Tuesday, June 6, you will notice a new look and feel for Brightspace.  A cleaner interface, new fonts, updated icons and some new workflows mean that your courses will look more polished and modern than ever. The upgrade on June 6 will require a downtime between 4 AM and 8 AM and status of the upgrade will be posted at http://status.mnscu.edu/desire2learn/.

The new user interface, called the Daylight Experience, was built with a responsive design. This means that it adapts to different screen sizes and looks great on laptops, tablets and smartphones. You’ll find it much easier to stay connected and access the system from anywhere.

Although your common course work processes aren’t changing, you’ll notice some positive changes when you first dive in. New fonts, icons and an updated layout will make it easier for you to go in and get right to the content that you are interested in. All of your courses will adopt this new look and feel, providing you with a consistent experience when accessing from different devices.

Here are two videos that demonstrates the changes on the Brightspaces My Home page and the Course Home page:

If you need help navigating the new version of Brightspace after June 6, please set up an appointment with one of our NHCC Peer Tutors. The tutors can also help you with the current version of Brightspace before the upgrade if you need it. To make an appointment, schedule it through TutorTrac.
