Brightspace Supports for Students

Brightspace (NIC’s new digital learning environment) continues with all Spring 2022 courses.

There are a number of ways NIC students are receiving support for this new platform. You can help too.

  1. Email students notifying their courses are in Brightspace at
  2. Make a short video tour of your Brightspace course (where to find resources, content, etc.) and welcoming message.
  3. Add NIC Student Supports Module to each of courses (see Instructions)
  4. Schedule a Student Orientation to Learning Technologies from Student Technical Services for your class (f2f or online) focusing on Brightspace
  5. Remind students about the “Announcement” on main page of Brightspace with all the essentail links, and tips for using Brightspace.
    1. Direct students to Learn Anywhere Brightspace Page where they will find a handout, video and key information
    2. Direct students to Brightspace Student Video Tour
  6. Give them a few days and they’ll likely feel comfortable and will find their way around.
  7. Tell them to reach out Student Technical Services for help.
