Brightspace and Digitally Enabled Learning

At the University of Suffolk, Brightspace is the heart of our learning, teaching and assessment for our students and our staff. Effective and intentional use of Brightspace  ensures that our students can access high quality learning materials wherever they are, and continue to work collaboratively, or complete formative and summative assessment. Brightspace is also the home of the University's Student Information Hub and the University's CPD Hub for staff. 

As well as Brightspace, our digitally enabled learning is makes use of tools and classroom technologies such as Panopto, for learning session capture,  

The information in these pages will help you to develop your own skills and knowledge in the effective use of each of these technologies and to access specialist training and support from our Learning Design Team.

Brightspace Staff Support: Digipaths, Hub and Workshops

Digipath series

The Digipath series has been developed to support all staff with responsibility for teaching in the development of engaging and and inclusive content in Brightspace. Completion of modules 1 and 2 is mandatory for all staff on teaching contracts as part of their probation development plan.

Brightspace Staff Support Hub

We have created lots of support materials for the intentional and effective use of Brightspace, and you can find these in our Brightspace Staff Support Hub within the wider University Staff CPD Hub. This area is referenced throughout our guidance here, We are adding content all the time, but it always includes materials for assessment, communication, content design and navigation. 


You can also see what workshops we are currently offering and book on in the CELT CPD calendar via the tab at the top of this page.
