Brightspace Staff Support

Training, Support and Help

Asychronous CPD

All staff are automatically enrolled on the Digipath modules within Brightspace itself. These will give you an overview of how to best use the Online Learning Environment, and of the theory that underpins these learning and teaching strategies.

They will remain available to you after completion, so please do refer back to the tutorials whenever you need to.

If you’re not sure how to do something in Brightspace, see our tutorials at

Synchronous CPD Workshops

We offer a range of workshops that staff can book onto. The most effective way to do this is for your entire team to book onto a workshop. These can be arranged at a time that suits your team. The calendar below will give you a sense of the kinds of sessions that we offer, but please contact us if you'd like to arrange one at a different time.

Synchronous One to Ones

We can also provide individual support to staff when needed.

This might include:

  • An introduction to Brightspace for new members of staff
  • A module healthcheck where we look at one of your Brightspace modules together and make recommendations
  • Support with a new tool or approach you're using
  • Guidance on how to take a more blended approach to your module design and learning activities

To book a training session, visit to make an appointment with the Learning Design team.
