D2L Brightspace Pulse - Mobile App

Rated by students as the best student mobile app, Brightspace Pulse makes it fun and easy for learners to stay on top of the work they have coming. With a visual to show upcoming activities, learners can use Brightspace Pulse to plan their week – knowing when they really have to buckle down. They can track upcoming assignments, access course content online or offline, submit a discussion post, take a quiz, access grades, or view their course activity feed.

It’s easy to stay up-to-date with app notifications for new content and upcoming due dates, an activity feed of course announcements and active discussions that the student is following. We know that seeing a grade can be a stressful moment. Students can choose to reveal their grade whenever they choose.

We spent years connecting with students on campuses to find out what matters the most and designed Brightspace Pulse with a growth mindset to reduce anxiety and build confidence with friendly feedback and messages.

We have sustained the #1 rating for student apps in both the Google and Apple app stores because we built our apps optimized for the most frequent activities students need to do while on-the-go.
