Quick Steps: faster, technically driven sessions.
Select the delivery method and pace that works for you.

Start your Brightspace training with the Getting Started with Brightspace workshop to provide the basis for the more advanced workshops.

Once you are registered for a workshop, please remove your name from waitlists of workshops of the same name, so others can take your spot.
