A quick “garage” style project that uses a web browser extension to give learners quicker access to their learning materials.

QuickerLinks, a prototype developed by D2L Labs, makes accessing your Brightspace courses and materials quicker and easier. It is a web browser extension for Chrome and Firefox that shows which courses have updates and provides direct links to important learning activities.

It also has keyword shortcuts for administrators to easily access Manage Users, the System Log, and the Config Variable Browser (limited by user permissions).
