Streamline the process for sharing assignments
A new approach makes it easy to add and share an assignment with your students – and even attach reference materials. This can be done simply by creating assignment posts right from the activity feed. With the social interface of activity feed, students have a place to ask questions or make comments. They can upload their assignments, and it’s easy for you to keep track of what has been submitted.
Make it easy and fun for young learners in schools to share their work
Students will have a blast capturing and sharing their work using Portfolio’s friendly, animated cartoon character to guide them through every step. It’s easy for teachers to review and approve portfolio items, and share them with parents or guardians.
Keep parents in the loop for school students
Staying connected with parents and guardians keeps them engaged in their child’s education. It’s now easier than ever for teachers to keep parents in the loop with a few simple clicks using Brightspace for Parents. Parents get access to their own experience on any device, letting them check to make sure their child is on track, view upcoming online assignments and quizzes, see if work is submitted, or view classroom communications for each of their children.
Leverage tools you love to create compelling Lessons in schools
Create engaging lessons with confidence. You can double check that your lesson is set up how you want it by previewing the student experience. You have more options to create compelling content by being able to add OneDrive documents or creating content and editing in the HTML editor. And you can spruce up your course by easily adding links, including YouTube links, with the video displaying inline. Linking directly to specific spots in your lessons will make it simple to navigate to the right place.
