Here are our top five Brightspace tips and steps we recommend instructors know and do before the fall 2023 semester starts.
Instructors must make a course active before students can access it.
Instructors need to create a topic inside of a discussion forum before students can create threads or posts.
If adding Panopto videos to your course, you must provision the course first.
Instructors cannot send copies of announcements as emails. Encourage students to set their Instant Notifications to receive email updates when new announcements are posted. Students and instructors can install the Brightspace Pulse app to receive real-time alerts based on their Instant Notification settings.
Students need to launch Respondus LockDown Browser from a quiz inside of Brightspace. They cannot access Brightspace by launching the LockDown Browser app first.
