Brightspace Halifax Connection June 1, 2016
Saint Mary’s is implementing a new Learning Management System with a phased, multi-step soft launch that began in September 2015. All Spring and Summer 2016 courses will be in Brightspace; and full transition to Brightspace will be complete for the Fall 2016 term.
In preparation for the Spring 2016 term, the Brightspace Migration Team has begun moving all course content from the Blackboard platform to Brightspace.
Please use the Brightspace Course Content Migration Request web form to initiate the conversion of your course content files from Blackboard to Brightspace.
