This site is to provide students and parents with basic help getting starte​d around supported technologies and tools at the Calgary Board of Education. For further assistance, please contact your teacher at your school who can better assist you with your specific questions around how the technologies are being used in the classroom.

 

Brightspace (formerly known as D2L) is a secure, password-protected environment that provides students, teachers, and parents with collaboration, communication, and assessment tools to support student learning inside and outside of the classroom. It is accessible from anywhere, on any device. Brightspace is very flexible and therefore can be used in a variety of ways in CBE schools. Please be sure to talk to your teacher to better understand the use and expectations of Brightspace in your classroom and school.
