We are pleased to announce that preparations are underway for the expected migration from Blackboard to D2L’s Brightspace Learning Management System at our institution. The migration of the LMS is part of a larger SUNY initiative to implement a common Digital Learning Environment (DLE) across SUNY. This DLE will consist of the LMS (Brightspace), several common tool integrations, a common technical architecture and data integration, and a common look and feel for faculty and students. The DLE will allow SUNY to take advantage of economies of scale, better share best practices and resources across campuses, assure strong technical, instructional design and academic supports, and provide a familiar platform for students, faculty and staff who learn and teach at multiple institutions.
We have created this site to keep the SUNY Broome community informed on the planning and status of the migration, training opportunities, and resources for faculty and students. Please be sure to check back often as we will be updating this site frequently!
