Brightspace: your new learning management system

Brightspace is the innovative Learning Management System (LMS) adopted by Charles Sturt University, to replace our Interact2 (Blackboard) platform in 2024.

A small group of staff and more than 1000 students across 57 subjects have been teaching and learning in Brightspace since Session 1 this year. If you still use Interact2, you will be moved to Brightspace by the end of 2024.

This modern, mobile-friendly platform is utilised by over 1,300 higher education institutions globally, offering a seamless interaction experience for both staff and students.
