De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Brightspace, have you tried it yet?

This week you can enjoy the last days of summer. Next week is the start of the new academic year. New students are flooding the city and slowly campus life starts thriving once again. As an eager TU Delft student, you have of course already checked out all your courses for the first quarter, using Brightspace, the Collaboration & Learning Environment (CLE) of the university.

Brightspace is the new environment that replaces Blackboard. It looks clean and fresh, but Brightspace also brings you new features. Most important is the fact that Brightspace for the TU Delft is implemented in close collaboration with students, focused on the learning experience of students. Second major advantage is responsiveness. Brightspace will work on your laptop, tablet and mobile phone in the same way but optimised for your device. There is an app to get notifications directly on your mobile phone and select content for offline access.

Nevertheless, we are still working on improving Brightspace. During this academic year there is a team that will keep developing the environment to make sure it fits the need of all our students and teachers. This means that not all possibilities Brightspace offers will be available from the start. This also means that you can encounter a problem, bug, or simply something you do not understand. If so, the Brightspace team would very much like to know about this, so they can fix and improve the learning experience. By simply sending an e-mail to, you can help a lot.

For now, enjoy those last days of summer! And if you haven’t tried it yet, check out Brightspace at
