As a part our ongoing evaluation of updates to Brightspace, for Semester 2, we will be piloting a new widget called ‘Activity Feed’ which replaces the current ‘Announcements’ tool on your unit Homepage.
The Activity Feed allows linked content and activities to be more easily embedded in posts and brings a new approach to the way students can engage with a unit by allowing the option for students to comment on posts made by staff.

Join the pilot
The pilot will run this academic year during semester 2 for four units from each level in each Faculty, so spaces are limited!!
Sign up now if interested, by contacting your Faculty Lead Learning Technologist with your units of interest. The Activity Feed can be enabled in your sandbox first if you would like to try it out.

As a part of the evaluation we will be reviewing anonymised activity data within the pilot units and would also like to get some short feedback from staff and students.
