eCourseware (Desire2Learn) Tools
Brightspace Pulse is a mobile app that helps students stay connected with their courses in eCourseware (D2L Learning Environment). It provides one easy view of course calendars, readings, assignments, evaluations, grades, and announcements. The app can also help students make decisions about how to handle workloads. Brightspace Pulse tells students when to submit assignments and when to prepare for tests.
The ePortfolio tool is an 'electronic portfolio' linked right inside of D2L. This tool enables you to store, organize, and reflect on items that represent your learning experience. Items in your collection can include documents, graphics, audio files, videos, and presentations.
Build a collection of digital artifacts to share with others to get feedback and comments on your work. As a finished product, you can use ePortfolio to demonstrate your achievements to a potential employer.
