C- GCC Migrates to D2L Brightspace DLE


Our Move to a New Digital Learning Environment

SUNY has chosen the D2L Brightspace platform as the new Digital Learning Environment (DLE) to Replace Blackboard for all SUNY campuses. This decision is the result of a multi-year, industry-wide search that will replace the Blackboard Learning Management System (LMS) that was used by many SUNY campuses.

Columbia-Greene Community College has been selected to join Cohort 1 for the migration to Brightspace, which has already begun and will continue through 2022. We will be operational beginning in the Fall 2022 semester.

We’re excited about this acquisition of a dynamic platform to bring students the best possible learning experience.

The timeline:

  • August 22, 2022 – Blackboard is retired and becomes unavailable for use
  • August 25, 2022 – Brightspace becomes available for login by students and faculty. Ready, Set, Go…Online! course is available
  • August 30, 2022 – Fall 2022 courses become available in Brightspace for access by students during preview week.
  • September 6, 2022 – Fall 2022 semester begins

Students may find login information for Brightspace on the MyCGCC page.
