What is Brightspace?

Brightspace is an online software tool that your instructor might use to teach all or part of a course. If you've already taken classes at Suffolk, you might be familiar with Blackboard. Brightspace will be replacing Blackboard for a select number of courses in summer 2022, and will replace it completely in fall 2022.

Depending on how your instructor sets up their course, with Brightspace you can:

  • View course materials
  • Hand in assignments
  • Take quizzes and exams
  • Participate in discussions
  • View your grades
