What's New with Brightspace at MSU
From time to time changes that affect all users of the learning environment are implemented in Brightspace. This page points out some of the recent changes to the system.
Copy Course Components - validation logic has been added to the copy process - January 2020
Copy Course Components now contains a validation logic step in the course copy process which informs users if they performed a copy from the source previously. This helps the user avoid unnecessary duplication of copied course components.
If the course the user is copying content from has already been used to copy components into the current course, the dialogue box verbiage (as in the image below) is the same whether the user intends to select A (Copy All Components) or B (Select Components).
Note that selecting option A (Copy All Components) will start the copy process IMMEDIATELY and, if a complete course copy has already occurred, will have the effect of doubling up existing material that has been copied over previously.
Selecting option B (Select Components) will port the user into the selection process as normal.
Brightspace access - support for Internet Explorer has been removed - January 2020
As of January 1, 2020, Brightspace has ended support for Internet Explorer. All versions of Internet Explorer will no longer be able to access Brightspace.
