Changes to Brightspace Homepage

We’re making a few changes to simplify the navigation bar links on the Brightspace homepage for students to make it easier for them to find what they need and improve usability for mobile devices. These changes will be applied 29/06/23. The additional links for Staff Development and Analytics which are available for staff only will remain.

New navigation bar


My Progress has been removed from the Homepage, student feedback has shown that this link isn’t used from the Homepage but it is used where it is available within curricular unit pages.

Careers & Employability and Graduate Skills links have been consolidated under one Careers & Graduate Skills to group these areas.

Additional Learning Support has been moved from Library & Study Skills to the top level and renamed as Disability and Wellbeing Support to make this area more prominent.

Library and Study Skills has been renamed to Library and Academic Skills in preparation for the new Academic Skills Hub area which will be launch in August, prior to our new students arriving.
