Bridges/Sakai Learning Management System

Bridges is a web-based application that contains all the content and communication options for all courses at RWU. For distance courses, Bridges becomes your classroom. If you are a residential or local student, Bridges may be used as a supplement by your instructors to store course materials like a syllabus, to collect assignments, to administer quizzes and tests and to communicate. Watch these short tutorials to see how the most common functions work.
