Dear Colleagues,

As you are aware, USC is transitioning from Blackboard to Brightspace beginning in Summer 2024 – here is what you can expect in Spring 2024.

All faculty and instructors will gain access to Brightspace on January 16 – More information on how to log into Brightspace will be provided at a later date. I encourage you to take advantage of resources provided in the coming months.

Training for Brightspace will launch for faculty beginning January 16 – To see an overview of training options, please visit CET’s Brightspace Training Website. This site also contains a detailed description of each option, as well as session dates and registration links.

Information Technology Services (ITS) and Center of Excellence in Teaching (CET) have collaborated to provide diverse training options, ensuring a smooth transition to Brightspace through your preferred training modality. I want to thank the Brightspace at USC team who has been hard at work to provide these resources ahead of the holiday season.

Your curiosity to learn more about our new platform is imperative to our success in delivering continued teaching and learning excellence. For more information on the program, please visit the program website. You can also send any questions about the transition to the program team by emailing
