Competency-Based Education (CBE) is revolutionizing higher education by emphasizing skill mastery over traditional time-based learning. Implementing CBE requires a flexible Learning Management System (LMS) that meets diverse student needs. This abstract examines Brightspace, an adaptable LMS supporting CBE in colleges and universities.

Brightspace aligns seamlessly with CBE principles, offering personalized learning paths and granular competency-based learning. Its features include competency mapping tools for clear tracking and assessments, enhancing student progress monitoring. The adaptive nature of Brightspace promotes self-directed learning and empowers students through multimedia resources and personalized feedback. Case studies show that integrating Brightspace into CBE programs improves student engagement and learning outcomes.

This presentation explores how Brightspace reshapes higher education to meet the evolving needs of learners in the 21st century.
