Daylight Overview

Home Knowledgebase D2L Daylight Overview

D2L is updating their Learning Management System (called Brightspace) with a new look and feel for the user interface. PPCC Online will take this update on May 15, 2018.  The updated design provides increased visual appeal including new fonts, icons, colors, and cleaner formatting.  There have been changes to improve responsive navigation for mobile devices, tablets, and other narrow displays.  Tools now have a consistent look and feel with a focus on learning activities.  The Daylight Experience also features a new My Courses widget that provides a responsive tile-based layout and courses that display with images.
