Brightspace users with a Microsoft Teams license will now be able to seamlessly transition between both tools with the Microsoft Teams – Course Connector. This integration combines the strength and versatility of Brightspace as a learning platform with the power of Microsoft Teams to bring people together as colleagues and co-learners.
For example, user enrolments will now be automatically synchronised between the two platforms. Also, Brightspace users will be able to create private channels for course sections and link back to their course homepage through a tab in Microsoft Teams.
“We’re incredibly excited to add a deeper Microsoft Teams integration for our customers so they can engage and collaborate much more easily using Brightspace as a central hub for learning,” says Chad Lane, VP, Product Management at D2L. “The COVID-19 crisis has seen a huge uptake in online learning. We’re constantly looking for ways to make the experience as engaging and rewarding as possible and offering integrations with collaboration tools like MS Teams is a positive step toward that goal.”
