Welcome to Brightspace Tutorials
These tutorials will walk you through how to use ECC's course management system.
Desire2Learn (D2L) Brightspace® is the course management system used by ECC to deliver online and hybrid classes. It also enhances many face-to-face courses and offers a high-quality academic experience that can include integrated librarians, tutors, and more. You must be registered in a course using D2L to access the system. After registering for an online class, about one week before its starts, you will receive an email with instructions for accessing it.

To be successful, you need to be prepared with the necessary technology, such as laptops or Chromebooks, and access to the Internet. ECC's technology lending program offers these resources through the Library Circulation Desk, including access to graphing calculators. If you're unsure exactly what you need, speak to your instructor. You can request assistance with these items by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Public access computers are available in the college's computer labs or library on campus and offer Internet access, software, and computer print stations.
ReadSpeaker® is a tool that allows all ECC students to listen to specific material on D2L. For helpful videos on how to use this simple tool, visit:
