When to Activate NYU Brightspace Sites
Generally, NYU Brightspace sites are available for activation approximately two weeks after semester registration. The time frames below provide a general guideline around course site availability. Once faculty are able to activate their NYU Brightspace sites for the upcoming term, announcements will be posted in the NYUAD Intranet and the Faculty Gazette email newsletter.

Personalized Help with NYU Brightspace
We offer multiple self-help resources and tutorials to get you started with using NYU Brightspace. Additionally, academic technologists are available to work with you individually to set up your course sites and customize them to your curricular needs. You may also schedule an appointment with the team at the Center for Academic Technology.
The NYUAD Library can assist faculty with adding library materials to their NYU Brightspace course site. Services include:
- Linking any e-content available within the NYU Library collections — database content, journal articles, ebooks, and more.
- Scanning and uploading NYUAD Library books.
Please request assistance two months prior to the beginning of the semester to ensure availability of content. Please note NYU'S policy, based on Fair Use Copyright Law, dictates that no more than 15 percent of a book be scanned and uploaded to NYU Brightspace. Selections that exceed that limit can be placed on Course Reserve upon request.
