Folio is Georgia Southern University’s branded version of the D2L Brightspace learning management system. It allows faculty to share resources with, collect assignments from, provide feedback to, and update grades for students in courses across modalities. It also allows faculty to administer fully online courses.
The CTE offers regular face-to-face trainings on Folio features, but for immediate assistance, browse our library of Quickguides below or schedule a one-on-one consultation with an Instructional Designer.
Enroll in Folio Course: Getting Started with Folio for Faculty
Learn how to use Folio’s tools and features with self-paced online tutorials and audio-visual presentations. Topics include installing the Folio Foundations Online Course Template, using Folio tools such as gradebook, quizzes, online discussions, and dropboxes for assignment submissions, as well as meeting federal guidelines for Web accessibility.
All Georgia Southern faculty are pre-enrolled in Getting Started with Folio for Faculty, but sometimes a name or two eludes us. If you are not able to use the link or find the course in your Folio menu, please contact the CTE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
