Called ‘Brightspace Pulse’ it was originally developed as a way for students to receive notifications, however, it has been redesigned and now offers almost full Brightspace functionality. Students can access their course material on the go and staff can manage their Units from anywhere.
As an example, I was recently asked to help where a MUSE survey had been accidentally deleted. I was able to import the survey from another unit, set up the link on the module then set date and time restrictions before making the survey visible to students, all from my phone in less than 10 minutes.
I would still rather work from a computer, but it is useful to know there is an alternative options when I’m away from my laptop.
The App is available from Google Play or the Apple App Store, just search ‘Brightspace Pulse’.
