Vanderbilt announced that it will launch D2L’s Brightspace as its primary course management system in summer 2017. Brightspace will replace Blackboard, the university’s current system.
Brightspace was chosen after a yearlong needs assessment and vendor selection process involving faculty, staff and students.
“The move to Brightspace is part of Vanderbilt’s ongoing strategic effort to embrace educational technologies that foster innovation in learning, teaching and discovery,” Provost Susan R. Wente said. “Brightspace is a modern, responsive course management system that will support effective teaching across the entire campus.”
