From Zero to Course: Brightspace Bootcamp

Jul 18, 2024 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM

Registration Deadline: Jul 18, 2024 10:00 AM

This workshop will cover key topics to assist with your course development process, especially if you chose self-migration.  
We will begin this online workshop with options for moving files from Sakai and loading them into Brightspace, structuring and organizing your course pages and exploring different templates. Following this, we will demonstrate how to use these templates effectively. Participants can build units and lesson pages, focusing on a representative week of their course. We will also provide an overview of managing files, including creating a folder structure. You'll build a simple page and add course content to a unit, with ample time for questions and discussion throughout the session.  
Join us to gain confidence and competence in setting up your Brightspace course site!

This is a "hands-on" workshop. To prepare for the workshop, we recommend that you request your OWL Brightspace personal sandbox if you haven't already. Request your sandbox at Sandbox access can take up to a week and you'll be notified by email when it's ready.
