Share your story and rally your learners.

If your nonprofit is like most, you need to keep a diverse group of people informed. From your employees and volunteers to your board members and donors, everyone who’s involved in your mission needs to get behind the cause. How you can manage this tall order when people are widely dispersed, your resources are stretched thin, and the budget is tight? You need a powerful yet economical solution to systematically share your story and convey important information and processes. With the Brightspace learning platform, you can easily deliver training to every constituent group without exhausting your staff or busting your budget. Create and assign courses by role, track progress, automate communications, and more. Flexible, scalable, and secure, Brightspace is the best way to secure your learners’ commitment to the important work you do.


Unions have an awesome responsibility.

As a dynamic institution of the American economy, you’re here to represent your members and amplify their voices.

We’re really excited to see where this partnership takes us, particularly at a time when the need for learning support, especially online, has never been greater.”
