Works on any device.

Students, employees and instructors are constantly on the move. They need to access their courses and learning materials no matter where life takes them. Built using responsive design, Brightspace automatically adapts to different screen sizes to provide a great user experience on computers, tablets, and smartphones.

Mobile-first design.

Our mobile-first approach to design gives you access to the latest features faster. When new updates are released they’re immediately available on both desktop and mobile devices. You don’t need to worry about keeping a separate mobile app up to date.

Easy to navigate.

Whether you’re an instructor setting up a quiz or a student uploading an assignment, the process needs to be simple. Daylight makes it easy to find what you need so that you can get things done faster.

Modern and clean.

With new fonts, layouts, and a fresh colour palette, Daylight makes a great first impression on new users. The design invites them to dive right into their Brightspace experience, and is accessible to those using assistive technologies.
