Desire2Learn (D2L) Brightspace

Desire2Learn (D2L) Brightspace
is a course management system. It provides instructors with tools that allow them to use technology to interact with students. Online courses are "held" using D2L Brightspace. Face to face and ITV courses may have a D2L Brightspace site to "enhance" the classroom experience.

If you have been teaching at Minnesota West, you are likely already in the D2L Brightspace system. If you are not in the system and need to be added, or if you need to set up a course within D2L Brightspace, contact Kayla Westra, the D2L Brightspace Site Administrator.

Faculty, adjuncts, and staff should have access to the MnWest Faculty and Staff Learning and Resource Center. Faculty and adjuncts should also have access to the Teaching with D2L course. If you do not have access, contact Kayla Westra to be enrolled.
