Keep up with your courses using the Brightspace Pulse app. Available for both Android and iOS platforms, the app gives you access to your courses within a D2L Brightspace mobile experience. Stay connected with your learning and complete tasks while on the go!

The Brightspace Pulse app allows students to view important deadlines, check grades, and review course content. The app is optimized to display clearly on any size screen, reducing the need to pinch, zoom, and squint. The main features of the app include the ability to:

  • View upcoming items that are due
  • See a graphical view of workload for the week
  • View Notifications and Announcements
  • View Content and Grades
  • View and reply to Discussions

Please note: The Brightspace Pulse app is not a replacement for accessing courses on a computer. Students are advised to view content and complete course assessments via a web browser, ideally on a laptop or desktop computer.

Brightspace Pulse is available for free download from the Google Play store or Apple App Store.
