Daylight Experience

The Center for Teaching Excellence at Georgia Southern assists faculty with the development and delivery of online course content. Faculty receives technological and pedagogical training, consultation, and ongoing support.

D2L Brightspace is the Learning Management System (LMS) that powers both Folio on the Statesboro campus and eClassroom on the Armstrong and Liberty campuses. The D2L LMS contains tools and features for delivering online instructional materials to all students at Georgia Southern. For Summer 2018, eClassroom will be the LMS tool for the Armstrong and Liberty campuses and can be accessed via the Port of Armstrong. Beginning Fall 2018, students and faculty on all three Georgia Southern campuses will use Folio for online course materials and instruction. Folio can be accessed via the MyGeorgiaSouthern portal.
