The Daylight Experience
Rise and Shine!
Desire2Learn is updating D2L with a new look and feel for the user interface.
Visually Appealing – This updated design provides increased visual appeal including new fonts, icons, colors, and cleaner formatting. The Daylight Experience also features a new My Courses widget that provides a responsive tile-based layout and courses that display with images.
Mobile Friendly – There have been changes to improve responsive navigation for mobile devices, tablets, and other narrow displays. The D2L Daylight Experience features are optimized for use in modern web browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge.
Intuitive Navigation – Tools now have a consistent look and feel with a focus on learning activities.
- “Dropbox” will change to “Assignments”
- “News” will change to “Announcements”
Fast – D2L is continuing to optimize performance and improve page load times in the Daylight Experience.
The Daylight Experience doesn’t modify your content or other settings in D2L. All workflows and features in the Daylight Experience are available on all supported browsers. (See https://community.brightspace.com/s/article/Brightspace-Platform-Requirements for the most current platform requirements)
D2L has created a quick overview of how to navigate the D2L environment:
