Brightspace Pulse App


Keep up to date in your courses with the Brightspace Pulse app. Available on Android and iOS, Pulse allows you to check into your D2L courses.

The main features of the app include:

  • View upcoming items that are due
  • See a graphical view of workload for the week
  • View Notifications / Announcements
  • View Content and Grades
IMPORTANT: It is strongly recommended that you use a desktop or laptop computer, not Pulse, to complete your assignments and quizzes.

Sites outside of D2L or areas of D2L that are not natively supported by the Brightspace Pulse app will attempt to open up in your mobile device’s browser.
