Get more out of Brightspace with Quicklinks!

Posted by on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 in Uncategorized.

In this video, Stacey walks through how to create an announcement or email for students with links that take students directly to different content files or assignments inside of the course. Using the Quicklinks tool, you can send students a direct link to just what they need.

Here are some guides that might help you as you try out Quicklinks on your own:

How do I email students? 

How do I view my course from the student view?

How do I add modules and content to my course?

How do I create an assignment?

    Hi there,
    On my Brightspace, I have some quicklink course files that I no longer want listed under ‘course files’. How do I delete single files from the list of Course Files that come up when I click on quicklinks?
    Thanks very much!

    Hey Carrie!

    To delete a file from your course files, you can navigate to Course Admin -> Manage Files, then select the checkbox for the file you’d like to delete and click on the trash can icon. This will delete the file everywhere it’s used in the course, so do so carefully!

    I’ll follow up with you via email to clarify any questions you might have.
