TRN-100: Brightspace Tutorial

Northeast Iowa Community College is committed to student success in the online environment. The College uses the Brightspace Learning Environment (LE) to deliver its online course materials. To best assist students in the navigation and use of the NICC Brightspace courserooms, all students who plan to enroll in online or hybrid courses, must successfully complete the online video tutorial, the TRN-100: Brightspace Tutorial. It demonstrates how to use the unique features, tools and links within Brightspace.

The TRN-100 tutorial is a one-time requirement prior to, or soon after, course registration. The TRN-100 tutorial is beneficial to all students as all instructors are required to use Brightspace to provide their course syllabus and grades. Face-to-face instructors may also use their Brightspace courserooms to provide communications and additional resources. 

Once a student is accepted into the College, the tutorial can be completed and accessed at any time. When logged into Xpress, choose TRN-100: Brightspace Tutorial from the Academics drop-down menu. The tutorial can be completed in approximately 30 minutes and when finished, will prompt the user to provide their name and birthdate to verify successful completion on their school record.
