What is D2L Brightspace?

D2L Brightspace is an online account where you access your course material, submit your assignments, participate in discussions, check your grades, and communicate with your instructor. Being able to use D2L Brightspace is crucial to your success at Bow Valley College.

*You will get access to your D2L Brightspace account two weeks prior to the start of the term. Your registered classes will appear on the first day of class*

If you have never used D2L Brightspace before, have used it at a different institution, or would just like a refresher, please watch the following D2L Brightspace orientation video.


D2L Brightspace & MS Teams workshops are held at the beginning of each semester. The workshops explain what the software is, why it is used, and covers the most commonly used features.
