Brightspace Learning Management System (LMS) is a cloud-based software that allows your instructors to provide you course materials, give quizzes and tests, you can turn in assignments via Brightspace as well. It is a means for you to collaborate with your classmates, schoolmates, college. It is visually similar to Facebook and also allows you storage similar to Google Drive, or Dropbox. You will get access to Brightspace once you receive your SKC Student Email access. Brightspace has an app in the Android and Apple stores. Your login will be the same as your Student Email Login.
Along with your mail account you will also receive access to Google's “GSuite” which includes: google drive, google docs, sheets and slides, contacts, google calendar and more. While you are at SKC you are free to use these productivity tools.
These can take the place of many of the functions of Microsoft Office Suite.
Once you have been accepted to Salish Kootenai College and received your student ID number you can have an SKC Student Email account created. Contact the help desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 406-275-HELP(4357).
Your student email can be reached at www.gmail.com.
Google Drive allows you to store files created in other G Suite Apps as well as those created outside of the G Suite.
Stay on time and on track using Google Calendar. Create one-time or repeating events (like classes) and never miss an appointment.
A word processing app similar to Word, Google Docs makes it easy for you to take notes, create outlines or write an entire term paper.
Whether you want to or not you will eventually need to use the power of spreadsheets and Google Sheets has you covered.
Sooner or later during your college career, you will be called upon to create a presentation. Similar to Powerpoint, Google Slides lets you create a presentation to remember.
