|It's made school all the easier simply because of the ease that comes with the use of Brightspace
|The program is cumbersome and after many student and instructor complaints our university has switched over to iCollege
|It's a great source, and I would recommend it to everyone
|Overall, my experience with Brightspace is negative
|Very happy with it from a student side when the faculty take time to set it up
|Brightspace provides multiple places to find the same things
|But setting up a good classroom can be more work than teaching
|This is confusing, especially when some assignments are loaded in a given course module but not in the 'Assignments' tab, or vice versa
|I like the ability for there to be an online classroom and I like that it records the lectures
|However, it is frustrating to use and has more case-by-case / glitching problems that other learning management softwares I have used."
|I like how the online classroom allows for screensharing and chatting also
|I like how it is designed
|We where using google class before and I find bright space a cleaner easier to use platform."
What I liked most was the simple and effective organization. It was a software that was definitely created in mind to set students up to succeed. Firstly, the way the Chapters, sections, topics, and individual assignments were organized on the side was something that was consistent for each of the subjects I was studying. Then on the top bar, you were able to click on pages that would essentially "filter" the types of class material. You could see all the assessments in one place, all the assignments in one place, and your grades. On top of that, every single thing was linked back to the corresponding item. For example, if you couldn't recall what "assignment 2" was when looking at it in the gradebook, you were able to click it and redirect it to the original post. There was also notifications for when assignments were open and reminders for when exams and homework was due. As someone who has used canvas, blackboard, google classrooms, and a few other softwares for school, these functions were not common. There were also times where it would be extremely hard and confusing to navigate. However I never ran into that issue with D2L.

As an administrator at my previous employer, I appreciated the flexibility to change pretty much anything that I wanted in the system. The ability to change what things were called in the system were very nice. In the most recent version that I had used, Brightspace had taken steps to make some changes on how system settings were handled to update the interface. Previously, the interface of the DOME was one of the most painful parts of the system. I also appreciated the service desk that Brightspace has built up over the last three years. When I began using Brightspace, items could get lost very easily with the technical teams, but after some difficult issues, Brightspace has turned around a great deal, and updates to tickets were timely and applicable for a while before I stopped using it.

For smaller schools, this learning management system is not affordable. It will be good to have a product that caters to small groups which is offered at a reduced rate.
