Brightspace (formally called D2L) is a secure web-based Learning Management System. Brightspace provides Calgary Catholic School District (CCSD) Grades 7-12 students, teachers and parents access to course Grades, Assessment, Communication, and Resource tools. Access to these tools is available anywhere there is internet access.
Login at directly at dl.cssd.ab.ca, or you may access it from our school’s main page. Each student has a unique username and password which is meant to be shared with parents or guardians only.
Your D2L School Home Page will contain several widgets (boxes) with different functions such as: News, Calendar, and My Courses. Individual courses may be accessed by clicking the dropdown and by selecting from the course list or in the My Courses widget.
The Grades tool transparently manages student assessments. Students and parents can review grade details and the overall grades at any time to track progress. Grades and feedback are entered regularly and as soon as possible after assessment completion. The overall grade is cumulative from course start-up, and will fluctuate, as items are entered, thus re-balancing existing item weights.
Comments specific to your child’s progress are also available here. They provide more specific and timely feedback on student learning in the context of the assessments. Zeros will also have an accompanying comment to provide background and the potential for reassessment.
