Create content quickly and easily

It’s easy for teachers to use intuitive course-building tools to create lessons aligned with standards—so they can cover what they have to in the way they want to.

  • Teachers can create lessons aligned with standards using materials from publishers, district-developed content, open educational resources (OER), or existing content stored on cloud storage services like Google Drive™ or Microsoft Office 365.
  • Suggested pacing shows how materials fall into the class calendar, and drag-and-drop functionality makes it easy for teachers to add, change, and arrange content for on-the-fly adjustments.
  • Teachers can map content to standards in just a few clicks, and helpful visualisations let teachers know whether they’re covering the right material for standardised tests.

Keep students engaged with a social hub for course homepages

Teachers can communicate with students quickly and easily on the course homepage by using the social activity feed. With just a few clicks, teachers can share what’s new and what needs attention.

  • Teachers can post reminders, upcoming assignments, new content, or messages to kick off class discussions.
  • It’s easy to share content with the class due to an integration with Google Drive and the ability to post media from the YouTube™ video community or other favourite sites.
  • Students can engage with the teacher and each other by commenting on posts, helping to foster an engaging learning culture.

  • Students can upload pictures and audio reflections to Brightspace right from the app to demonstrate evidence of learning.
  • Teachers can easily review, approve, and provide feedback on portfolio items and share them with parents in one click.

  • Prominent notifications show parents when there are potential concerns about missed due dates.
  • It’s easy for parents to keep tabs on what’s going on in school by looking at posts from the activity feed.

  • It’s easy to connect with your school’s student information system and other systems using application programming interface (API)-based application data that allows bidirectional integration of student data.
