We began using the BrightSpace Learning Management System in Fall 2018. You have been enrolled in a BrightSpace course called BrightSpace Instructor Basics that is packed with advice for getting started. The IDAT Team is also conducting workshops and individual consultations. This document summarizes some of their training resources.
The College Portal, MyMeredith can be used as your homepage for all things Meredith. It includes links to BrighSpace, Self Service, and many of the information resources you will need.
We are committed to providing all electronic documents in an accessible format. Advice on how to create accessible documents can be found in another BrightSpace course, Universal Design and Accessibility for Digital Courses. A good first stop within the course is the NCDAE Goals Cheat Sheets for Creating Accessible Content. There is a cheat sheet for ensuring, for example, that Word documents are accessible.
NEVER SHARE YOUR PASSWORDS. Meredith will never ask you for your passwords via email. Technology Services staff may need a password to service your computer, but they will only ask for that password in person.
