Brightspace Implementation Timeline

Brightspace timeline

Brightspace implementation timelineUCM's Blackboard contract will expire on June 30, 2025. As a result, all online courses will be migrated to D2L's Brightspace as the sole Learning Management System supported by UCM. Moving forward, starting with Summer 2025, UCM courses will no longer be available within Blackboard. 

Early Brightspace adopters (roughly 25 UCM faculty who will use Brightspace to deliver at least one course) have been identified for the fall 2024 semester. Instructor choice will be available in the Spring 2025 semester. The full transition to Brightspace will begin in the Summer of 2025.
Please watch email and UCM Daily for Brightspace training opportunities, starting soon.

For comprehensive updates and information on UCM's transition from Blackboard to Brightspace, including important dates, migration details, and training sessions, visit our LMS Transition Updates and Information page.
