Brightspace Documentation, Checklist, & Guides

The Quick Start Guides provide a guide for some of the tools and tasks most commonly inquired about.

The Maintenance Checklists provides instructors with detailed instructions of maintaining their Brightspace courses at the beginning and end of the semester. It is vitally important for instructors to properly setup their Brightspace course in the beginning of the semester and retain copies of certain materials at the end of the semester. Typically, the University System of Georgia retains course information in Brightspace for 3 years; any historical data would need to be stored by individual instructors.

User documentation, available through the Brightspace Resource Center, is available on the following topics:
