Student Resources for theSpring

Beginning with the Fall 2020 semester we will be using a new Learning Management System (LMS). theSpring (Brightspace) has replaced Blackboard. While the user experience is quite different, theSpring is more modern and streamlined and should prove to be an improvement over what we had before.

Below you will find links to documentation and demonstration videos on common tasks you’ll be performing in theSpring. Also see the embedded videos demonstrating some of these tasks in our Skidmore instance of theSpring.
