Overall Satisfaction with Brightspace

I work in a large-scale corporation that strongly emphasizes continuous learning and improvement. Brightspace is an LMS tool that has been implemented within some administrative departments of the company. Brightspace enables employees within my organization to further engage in their development by interacting with content across multiple mediums. Brightspace has offered an extremely efficient platform to engage in continuous learning via mobile, social, and video content while also providing an adaptive toolset to meet employees at their current knowledge level. Our organization sets monthly learning outcomes for employees with access to the platform depending on their position within the company. Our business has experimented with a variety of LMS tools for organizational use (Skillsoft, ANA, and in-house options) and Brightspace has offered one of the more unique and personalized continuing educational tools that we've experienced thus far!
  • File sharing capability between users is largely unparalleled in the LMS space (from my experience).
  • The user interface has continued to receive valuable updates that have created an incredibly efficient platform to navigate.
  • Brightspace offers a single source of truth for standardized learning outcomes based on company objectives.
  • One can feel a bit rushed on the Brightspace platform during the log-out period. Security requirements may require this, but it makes end-users more conscious about getting through content than taking notes.
  • From my experience, there is not a direct connection between the platform and Outlook.
  • Some content on the platform can feel redundant.
  • Brightspace offers tailored learning outcomes for employees to further their organization knowledge.
  • There are significant analytical benefits that enable administrators to view engagement data and cultivate organizationally-specific content.
  • Brightspace enables a consistent and single-source of truth channel for learning but still does not fit all levels of employees.
Brightspace offers one of the most tailored employee engagement learning platforms in existence. My organization has utilized a multitude of employee engagement and learning platforms and Brightspace has offered one of the most customized tools that we have used thus far. We have continued with Brightspace because of the noticeable quality improvement compared to many of the previously used tools. I would highly recommend for any enterprise looking to improve employee education and engagement.
As a member of a large-scale organization with a wide variety of employment positions, I view Brightspace as primarily an administrative solution for continuous learning and engagement. As an educational platform, Brightspace works perfectly for setting learning goals for particular groups or departments. Furthermore, there are many customization options intent on personalizing the overall user experience for employees. The platform also does a wonderful job of increasing overall engagement, retention, and completion of learning goals. However, I do not necessarily view Brightspace as the learning tool for all employees. There are production employees within my company and they may better benefit from other learning tools that do not require being on a computer.
