Design your Brightspace course for Pulse
Brightspace Pulse is a mobile application that helps your students stay connected to your Brightspace courses with one easy view of course calendars, readings, assignments, evaluations, grades, and announcements. Students use Pulse to quickly check in with all the courses in which they are enrolled from their phone.
What do you need to do to make your class Pulse friendly? Not a whole lot.
Pulse will pick up any assignment submission folder, content module, content topic, calendar item, checklist item, quiz, or survey with a due date. Also included are discussions forums and topics with end dates, grade items with new grades or scores, and any announcement item that was updated with the "major edit" checkbox. Most of these are probably things you are already doing anyway.
For examples of how students use pulse, check out Brightspace Pulse.
