Ratings and Reviews
App badly needs modernized
This application is extremely bare-boned and not user friendly. I cannot fathom how universities so focused on Technology degrees, such as SNHU, even consider this platform a viable option for conducting class work. A prime example of this, is that you cannot use the Pulse Brightspace app in landscape mode when on iPad. This should have been implemented for such a widely used student hardware component. Not to mention the poor load times for certain resources. The only good thing about this app is that I can see my classwork and schedule in a consolidated location- I can do that online too (and without craning my neck sideways to see everything). Think I’ll just use a web shortcut until this app is brought “up to snuff”.
Portland Community College Here
I am very happy to have found a phone app that I can access Portland Community College D2L( Bright Space). I tried to access my college online courses on D2L app but couldn’t. No idea how it worked here but I am glad that I can access my online classes on Pulse. My time on public transit is utilized efficiently and it counts towards my studying time. I am on top of my assignments because just like any app, it sends me notifications.
I wish if the tabs are to access grades and assignments in a way other than the notifications tab.
Very helpful app though, and a life changer.
Missing Access to Features
The app works smoothly, but it is a “bare bones” app. Many features are simply links to the content on their website. It is not a true mobile version where students can work on assignments through their tablets or phones (a supposed advantage in using D2L). Additionally, there are features and content areas missing from the app that I can only access through a roundabout way once the app directs me to the website. These features include access to the Announcements (which seems like a significant oversight) and any discussions forums that are not incorporated into learning modules. I must access the website to see the content within these areas.
