D2L Brightspace Announcement

Brightspace URL Login Change December 27

On December 27, 2017, the Brightspace login URL for NHCC will be updated from the currentnhcc.ims.mnscu.edu URL to the nhcc.learn.minnstate.edu URL. This is in keeping with the Board of Trustees' decision to change how the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system refers to itself, i.e., from the former "MnSCU" to the new "Minnesota State" as described in a news release from June 2016.

Brightspace will be unavailable on December 27 between 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. to complete the update. (http://status.minnstate.edu)

  • What should users (faculty, staff, students) do after the Brightspace domain change?
    After the domain change to nhcc.learn.minnstate.edu, users should update their bookmarks in all browsers to the new URL. 
  • What happens if a user goes to the old login URL address after December 27?
    From December 27, 2017 until January 23, 2018, users will be automatically redirected to the new URL site. The redirect will display a "splash page" to users that notifies them of the URL change and suggests that they update their bookmarks. After that, nhcc.ims.mnscu.edu will be a "dead" URL address and there will no longer be a redirect to the new URL. 
  • What should students do if they encounter a bad link in a Brightspace course or course file?
    Students should contact the instructor with details of where the bad link is located in the course.
  • What about D2L apps such as Pulse and Binder?
    As of December 27, students will need to log out of these apps and then log back in to the new domain address to reconnect to the D2L apps.

  • What about the MediaSpace URL ?
    As of December 27, students will need to login to mediaspace.minnstate.edu.
