4.6. Notifications and Activity Feed

Course Notifications

Students can receive announcements, notifications of changes, and updates to course content. Notifications may also be for Activity Feed. You will see announcements on the home page, but your instructor may choose to use Activity Feed as well. Activity Feed allows more of a two-way conversation like social media communication. Choosing notifications will allow users to be active in the conversation without logging into their course constantly.

To customize notifications, select the down arrow from Announcements and choose Notifications.

Announcements menu expanded to Notifications.

Use the Brightspace Pulse app to receive notifications on your phone. Download Brightspace Pulse available on iTunes Opens in new window or Google Play Opens in new window.
