Notifications Widget (NEW)

We have added a Notifications widget to the default course home page in Brightspace. This widget checks each user’s notification settings and provides a quick link to edit the settings. When you view the widget, you will see your personal Notification settings. When your students view the widget, each student will see their own settings. We will leave this widget on the default course home page for about 10 days. We hope this will help make more students aware of the Brightspace Notifications options. Here’s an example of the widget:

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have customized your course home page, you will NOT see this new widget. To fix this, we recommend that you:

  1. Click Homepages on the MyTools menu.
  2. In the context menu for the Course Default Homepage, choose Copy.
  3. In the Active Homepage menu, choose the Course Default – Copy and click Apply.
  4. If you need to edit your Homepage, click the Course Default – Copy and make your changes.
