Brightspace – Updated visual branding | New

To reflect D2L’s growth and evolution as a company, on January 12, 2022, we updated our visual brand to better reflect who we are today and will be in the future. Over the next several releases, the new visual brand will be updated in the default logos and icons that appear in Brightspace web applications and mobile apps. These updates do not impact brand overrides in existing Brightspace instances. For more information on the new visual branding, browse to: https://www.d2l.com/brand/.

Content – Print and Download in fullscreen | Updated

The Print and Download buttons are now available when viewing a topic in fullscreen, using the classic Content experience.

Previously, the options to print and download a topic only appeared on the main Content view, and when users opened a topic in fullscreen by clicking View content in new window, those options were not available.

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.
