Brightspace by D2L Support and Materials

Brightspace by D2L is SFA's learning management system. Brightspace is used by faculty across campus to deliver course content, post grades, and more. It is integrated with the mySFA portal and a number of online learning tools including Turnitin, LiveText, Zoom, and YouSeeU.


To access Brighspace, go to SFA's Brightspace log in page and log in with your mySFA username and password.

Searching for Brightspace information, tutorials, and help online? There's a robust user community with a wealth of information available for faculty and students:

D2L Brightspace Community

Creating a user account in the Brightspace* Community is free and easy, and gives you access not only to user guides and materials, but also to discussion communities consisting of educators using D2L at institutions across the globe. There is also a Product Idea Exchange where you can request new D2L features and tools. 

* Why "Brightspace"? That's the name the D2L corporation has given to its learning management system. So for our purposes at SFA, Brightspace = D2L.
