Streamline communications. Keep it personal.
Providing meaningful and personal messages to learners keeps them engaged and interested. Intelligent agents send automated emails, while making sure each learner gets a relevant message that is specific to them.
With Autumn16, we’ve added new features to the much-loved intelligent agents to make communications even more personal with the ability to:
- customise the ‘reply-to’ and ‘from’ fields so that learners can easily connect
- write more meaningful messages with increased character limits
- conduct a practice run to see who the message will be going to
- see what has been sent to whom with new history pages
Connect with video. Make it interactive.
Video is critical to delivering an engaging learning experience. Brightspace helps you harness the full power of video through multimedia lecture capture, personalised video feedback, and two-way video conferencing.
With the release of Video Assignments and additional features being added to Virtual Classroom, Brightspace now offers even more ways for people to learn and demonstrate their knowledge in a highly interactive and personalised way.
Fully integrated into the Brightspace platform, the Video Assignments tool by YouSeeU lets an instructor assign a Video Presentation to their class and provide time-stamped feedback within the completed video.
In Higher Education and K-12, Video Assignments can be used to evaluate and provide feedback on a broad set of communications skills. Instructors will be able to give learners feedback as they practice applying their knowledge and demonstrating their skills. This can be used to assess presentations, interview practice, practical skill demonstrations and more.
With the premium version, new types of assessments can be introduced into courses, such as real-world simulations, debates, peer reviews, other creative exercises using two-way video.
In corporate learning, Video Assignments can be used to help employees develop and become more successful in their roles. Employees can refine their presentation skills, rehearse sales pitches, and be evaluated on their retention during onboarding.
The premium version provides even more options that can be utilised for role-play training, evaluations of demonstrated skills, leadership development, and more.
