Brightspace Content Authoring Tool

As online learning becomes more prevalent, you want the courses you develop to be engaging and interactive, so your students get the most of their educational experience. However, if you’re like many Brightspace course developers, you find the course creation options to be static, which doesn’t work for today’s learners.

At SoftChalk, we developed a Brightspace authoring tool designed to provide the fastest, easiest, and most flexible way to create, manage, and share interactive course content with no programming skills needed.

Our built-in authoring tool is where the SoftChalk cloud-based platform shines and what makes it the perfect companion product for your learning management system.

Brightspace Content Authoring Tool User Testimonial

We pride ourselves on providing a user experience that improves the online learning environment for educators and students.  Here’s a testimonial from a National Board Certified Teacher and Librarian who uses SoftChalk for both her teaching and professional development needs.

SoftChalk allows us to easily organize information for both teaching and professional development because it makes it so easy to integrate our own content and then add SoftChalk’s interactive activities. Here in Hampton City Schools, we love having this resource to assist us in our instruction. Using SoftChalk for my work has helped me be more productive so that I am working smarter, instead of harder.
