Using the Pulse mobile app for your online classes

Posted by | Start the discussion

D2L has a mobile app for students called Pulse. The app isn’t intended to give you full access to your online class, but instead focuses on simple tasks like checking upcoming work, responding to discussions, and getting class notifications. Here’s a quick overview of the app and how to use it at PCC.

The application is in active development, so there are frequent updates. Some features we covered in this video may have changed, and there may be even cooler updates (or fixes) available now. Please use the feedback tool in the app (usually from the gear icon) to share what works and what falls short to help them make the app better for you.

Download the App

You can download the app from theĀ  iOS app store or from the Google Play store for Android devices.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
