From time to time changes that affect all users of the learning environment are implemented in Brightspace LE. This page points out some of the most recent changes to the system.

AWS Migration - Thursday, May 10, 2018

Brightspace LE (D2L) AWS migration has concluded - Brightspace LE is available.

Brightspace LE (D2L) will be unavailable from 6 a.m. to approximately 3 p.m. on Thursday, May 10, to facilitate a scheduled migration of the learning environment to AWS (Amazon Web Services) servers.

D2L advises that the process will take most of the day. Users should plan on being UNABLE to access D2L for the majority of the day on Thursday, May 10. On-Campus Office hours are cancelled for May 10.

After the migration, users should notice no change within Brightspace LE (D2L).

Why is this happening?

Vendor D2L is transitioning all clients to the Cloud Services offered by Amazon.

D2L’s Senior Vice President of Engineering, Nick Oddson, says: “By innovating faster using AWS, we can build better software for our customers, so they can do what they care most about: transforming the learning experience.”
