Pulse App for Brightspace Courses

The Brightspace Pulse app is intended to help students organize and plan for upcoming course activities through their mobile devices. It provides one easy view of course calendars, readings, assignments, evaluations, grades, and announcement items.

Course Friendly for Students

Your course can be Pulse "friendly" by setting due dates under the Restrictions tab for assignments and discussions. Quizzes, at a minimum, must have an end date to be set to be recognized in the Pulse app. The other settings are fine to use with quizzes.

Pulse for Instructors

Instructors can use Brightspace Pulse too. Many course features are editable and function quite well in Pulse. You can update content, add announcements, and complete assessments directly in Pulse as well. Pages not only resize for mobile screens, but the page layout will adjust to make the most functional space for the portion of the work you are engaged in.

Phone capture with course content modified to easily read on the small screen.

Added Functionality for Students and Instructors

Brightspace Pulse for Android now displays in Dark mode when Dark mode is enabled on your Android device. Using this mode can reduce eye strain and conserve battery power on your device.
