Setting up notifications helps learners to stay on top of their work.
Email notifications can be set up inside D2L. Courses can also be
excluded from notifications.
The Pulse app is the recommended method of receiving notifications as delivery of notifications is more reliable and users are able to interact with the content more easily.
Brightspace Pulse is a mobile app that helps learners stay connected and on track with their courses. It provides one easy view of course calendars, readings, assignments, evaluations, grades, and announcement items. The Pulse app is one of the easiest ways to get notifications from courses and provides an easy way to access courses from a mobile device.
Brightspace Pulse is available for download from any global Google Play™ store or Apple App Store®.
Note: A confirmation email will be sent to the email added in step 3. Notifications will not be received until the new email address is confirmed.
Excluding a course mutes notifications from that course in Notifications (bell icon) and email.
Note: To opt back in to Notifications from excluded courses, select the
circular arrow next to the course.
