An App that Students Love
Rated by students as the best student mobile app, Brightspace Pulse makes it fun and easy for learners to stay on top of the work they have coming. With a visual to show upcoming activities, learners can use Brightspace Pulse to plan their week – knowing when they really have to buckle down. They can track upcoming assignments, access course content online or offline, submit a discussion post, take a quiz, access grades, or view their course activity feed.
It’s easy to stay up-to-date with app notifications for new content and upcoming due dates, an activity feed of course announcements and active discussions that the student is following. We know that seeing a grade can be a stressful moment. Students can choose to reveal their grade whenever they choose.
We spent years connecting with students on campuses to find out what matters the most and designed Brightspace Pulse with a growth mindset to reduce anxiety and build confidence with friendly feedback and messages.
We have sustained the #1 rating for student apps in both the Google and Apple app stores because we built our apps optimized for the most frequent activities students need to do while on-the-go.
Uncompromised Learning that Works on Any Device
Our mobile apps were created based on hundreds of design sessions with users to help students and instructors be more productive. You work hard to deliver world-class learning experiences – don’t let your technology compromise that work. Once someone is ready to dive in, they will have complete access to anything in Brightspace no matter what device they’re on, without being tethered to a desktop. The reason they can do this is because Brightspace is the only LMS that adapts to the screen size by using responsive design–the same modern architecture that industry leaders such as Google, Amazon and Pinterest use.
Some platforms may claim they are mobile-friendly, but you can only access parts of the site on a mobile phone. Look at other learning platforms on your phone that use the three-column layout of the past. It just doesn’t work on a phone, and results in the web and app experiences being inconsistent and inaccessible.
Brightspace adapts automatically to fit the screen of the device being used without comprising the learning experience. The same experience across multiple devices means faster and easier adoption and usage for you and your learners. And that’s critical in reaching todays modern learner because studies have shown that students study on average 40 minutes longer on mobile devices than on desktops and finish course material 45% faster!2
Better mobile experiences for you and your learners
Other LMS vendors don’t support mobile browsers, which means that students must have the latest device to use their separate app. With Brightspace, everyone gets a consistent experience across browsers and apps.
