The future is Brightspace
Our current Learning Management System (LMS), Sakai, will stop being used for courses at the end of the Summer 2021 classes. It will be de-commissioned, turned completely off, after Fall 2021 classes end in December.
This webpage is here to provide informational resources to getting to know and become comfortable using it. This is for use by employees and students.
The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) has a web site already about Brightspace. It is a very good resource for learning about the Brightspace system. The page is at Make The Move to Brightspace.
To log into Brightspace, go to Brightspace login You will need to enter your Shepherd email address of email@example.com (if an employee) or firstname.lastname@example.org (if a student), and then your password. Brightspace is a Single Sign On (SSO) system.
Students: In order to add flexibility to your Brightspace experience, you may download the Brightspace Pulse app from the appropriate store, either Apple or Android.
For help, check the Brightspace Pulse app and the CTL FAQ website. If you cannot find the answer using those resources, please do one of the following:
