As most of you already know, SUNY Downstate has migrated from the Blackboard Learn learning management system (LMS) to D2L Brightspace. Read the instructions below and follow them to make sure you can log in and navigate your courses
Here are some basic instructions on how to access your Brightspace account:
Your instructor may require the use of exam software. You can find a practice exam in the Student Orientation and Information course.
NOTE THE CHANGE IN PROCEDURE! Unlike Blackboard Learn, you don't open the Respondus Lockdown Browser first to log in. Instead, log in using any web browser, enter the course and click on the Quizzes item on the blue navigation bar. Click on the test and then the "Launch Lockdown Browser" button at the bottom of the next page. That will call up the Respondus Lockdown Browser from your computer. (If you don't have the Respondus LDB installed, you can download it from the link at the test itself).
