4.3. Getting Started Widget

Getting Started Widget

The Getting Started Widget is a customization in Brightspace designed to help your instructor communicate important information the first time you log into the course. The widget will open automatically to the first page. Choosing Next prompts the next file to load. Scrolling may be necessary for longer pages.

Course homepage expanded to show a sample page of the widget (Instructor Information) opened in the same frame.

Continue to read the pages and choose Next until the last file is presented. The last file offers the option to Dismiss the widget. Choosing Dismiss will stop the initiation of the widget at the login to the course.

Typical Message from the Instructor page opened. Dismiss button highlighted as described.

You are only asked to view the content once, but you can always see the content again even if Dismiss was selected previously. Choose Getting Started to run the widget. (This is the same information found in the Getting Started content module if you prefer to navigate the table of contents.)

Course homepage opened with blue Getting Started highlighted. Arrows pointing to a sample page opened within the frame. Another arrow pointing from the first page to a second page highlighted. This shows the progress of the files within the widget.
