Notifications are automatically generated messages triggered within a course to help you keep up-to-date on changes to your course and upcoming due dates. You can have notifications sent to your UB email or to your mobile device when you have the Pulse app installed.
Instructors no longer have the option to send a copy of an announcement by email.
To receive notifications when new announcements are available or previously posted announcements are updated in a course, a student must set the following Instant Notifications:
The Brightspace Pulse app lets students receive notifications on their mobile devices. Receive an alert when a new announcement is posted or a grade is released.
Students must adjust their Brightspace Notification settings (from the app or from a browser) as well as their iOS or Android notification options.
In Account Settings, you can change time zones, how discussion boards are displayed and add an email signature.
Students must add pronouns in their HUB Student Center and enable them in Brightspace before others can view the pronouns in UB Learns.
Note: Pronouns for instructors and staff are not yet available at UB.
