TSU receives free access to Brightspace LMS
Tarlac State University academic group was granted with a free 60-day access to the Brightspace Learning Management System by D2L (Desire2Learn) after the product presentation held via Zoom today, May 20, 2020.
As presented by CAL Philippines Inc., Brightspace is a learning management system software created by D2L intended for online teaching and learning for K-12, higher education, and corporate learning.
The 60-day free use of the LMS includes full utilization of Brightspace for the university’s midyear/third trimester classes as well as access to online courses and trainings with certificates provided by Skillsoft, largest digital library and partner of CAL Philippines.
Brightspace, according to presenters, supports the migration and integration of content from Office 365, the existing TSU LMS platform.
It promotes blended learning, creates a virtual classroom, and features an offline mode for viewing of content.
According to TSU President Dr. Myrna Q. Mallari during the Zoom presentation, the academic group will review the features and benefits of the Brightspace LMS during the 60-day free access to be led by College of Computer Studies Dean, Engr. Marlon Gamido and Management Information Systems Office Director, Dr. Heidilyn Gamido.
She added that with or without COVID-19, using an LMS is already the future of higher education in the Philippines.
