bCourses is Berkeley’s official campus Learning Management System. It is a web-based tool that provides a learning hub and resource for instructors and students. bCourses features include enhanced site design and customization, which allows both instructors and students to maximize course engagement.
bCourses Training is available by request and via onsite workshops led by professionally trained Educational Technology Services (ETS) staff members.
bCourses Support includes: accounts and and permissions management, technical troubleshooting, and one-on-one site consultations.
The service engages faculty and students in a full learning experience without leaving Haas. Starting from a standardized Haas site design, instructors are able to collaborate with Haas Technology Solutions to further tailor bCourses to their needs. This includes automatic site setup and integration of third-party applications, such as Study.net and BlueJeans, which help enrich instructor-student interaction.
The service allows Instructors to create new or upload existing course materials and build graded activities within bCourses, while also using it to communicate with and provide feedback to students. It offers a variety of built-in assessment tools, as well as an opportunity to integrate external tools to customize the course experience.
