We recently announced our partnership with Harmonize, a tightly integrated, next-generation online discussion platform that you can use directly from within Brightspace! A social space modeled on today’s best social media, Harmonize helps you create more dynamic interactions in your online discussion forums for better engagement and deeper learning.
“To create conveniently collaborative communities for all students and instructors, we connect with the tech tools they’re already using. The integration with Brightspace puts Harmonize one click away for everyone who uses this popular LMS.” – Marcus Popetz, co-founder and CEO of 42 Lines
But first, a short time out. We know you have a lot on your plate. If you’re teaching online, you’re working hard to deliver a great remote experience to students whose lives have been upended in recent weeks. And like the rest of us, you have a lot of other things to think about right now.
We’re going to keep this short and leave some links for you to explore Harmonize further!
