While I like being able to get instant notifications from my professors, there are a bunch of times where the notification will not go away on my home screen. I will open all of the notifications, but it still will not disappear.
Very helpful 5/5
By Bro. McLaughlin
This app is the best app on my phone. It keeps my classes in order and so far has worked flawlessly. I sure wish I would have had it my freshman year, life would have been much easier.
Can’t open links 1/5
I’m only able to see a content list. Unable to open any link!!
Good app to have, especially now that I’ve had to keep up with school from home. However, it does have a few glitches here and there that are annoying. Every time that I attempt to check my notifications it says “error” although it had just alerted me that I had pending notifications. That is the only problem I have other than that I would have gave it 5 ⭐️‘s
Why not auto sync the due dates 😓 2/5
I wish there was a way to have the schedule of activities already to the calendar on the app. That way it can give you alerts and help remind you when an assignment is due.
Great App 5/5
The app works great with several schools.
Great for Bright Space! 5/5
I attend SNHU online and this app is super helpful in keeping me up to date with grades, assignments due, and the ability to do school work from my phone
Difficult to navigate. No visual cues for instructions. Ex board post and reply’s. Also unsure on editing submissions
Great app 5/5
Great app super user friendly
Very Functional 5/5
This app is very functional, easy to navigate. Helps me to be more productive in my courses while on the go!
I would lom to be able to have the timezone. I live in a different timezone than my school so everything is off by a day
Works well, needs more functionality 3/5
The app itself works fine, but not a lot can actually be done inside of the app. Many tasks require you to open it up in the web-version of Brightspace. For instance, there is no reason why quizzes can’t be completed natively within the app itself.
By jay sosososos
I like it
The app stopped working at the end of my spring semester (April 27th) and I need it for summer which begins May 11th, and it still has issues. I can’t access my classes.
Not notifying 1/5
So far I have not received any notifications on my home for class activity. I have made all the notifications adjustments on my phone and on the app and so far, nothing.
Won’t log me in 1/5
I keep trying to log in using my university credentials, but due to the two-form authentication the university uses it just brings me back to the university selection page.
I choose my school, log in, accept dual authentication (through my phone), only to be brought back to the school selection page.
I didn’t run into this problem with my iPad. It would be great to have access to this app on both my devices.
Please fix the the app it glitches, it crashes and I cant check my upcoming assignments or tests(calendar) I cant check content in my courses. I try pressing on the options but its not responding.
Broken since last update 4/5
I was logged out last update and can’t get logged in now. On the institution search page it never loads and schools when I search....
After a developer response I was able to log in. I had to disable location services to get the school list to populate.
Can’t Even Access Calendar 1/5
Downloaded this app to attempt to better track my class deadlines. Can’t even open the “calendar” function or send in bug reports without the app crashing every. Single. Time.
New bug? 1/5
By sick of this company
This app updated and since then my account no longer works. When I attempt to re register it doesn’t get past the school school selection screen
Ability to add the directions of each assignment straight from the app 5/5
This app is very great and it helps me stay on track on upcoming assignments in my business class, but it would be better if the app can display the directions each assignments straight from the app instead of going to the bright-space website to see what I need to complete for each assignment.
Pulse rate 5/5
By Katherine Moron
I like that as a student I am able to get to the assignments that professors assign quick and easy to be on track!
SNHU student 5/5
Love it! 5/5
So easy to use and I love the notifications that pop up when a professor posts a grade or adds new material.
Great for checking deadlines 4/5
Love this app for some things. Videos don’t play though, so that’s a little bit of a bummer. I love the deadline view and the ability to access d2l on the fly.
Platform is not consistent when using different devices. Certain files are visible on one device and not the others. Should be nimble and dynamic. It should also be intuitive based on audience.
Fix the bug!!!!!! 2/5
Normally love it but recently the notification blip won’t go away even after I’ve checked both the app and desktop multiple times, as others have said. So annoying
Trash app 1/5
I’ve had a red notification blip for two weeks and I’ve already viewed the course content in the app and on desktop as well. It won’t go away. In the previous versions it did not do this. The recent “updates” are fancy words for “downgrade” stick to desktop, These developers don’t care.
Alerts/notifications remain in the dashboard even after they’ve been read
The red numerical badges don’t go away after you read the announcements or subscriptions
Understanding how it works 2/5
By Lisa DKP
It’s difficult trying to figure out how the App works
By Becca. j. p.
It annoying how I don’t even finish the homework and I get grad notifications.
Not a online school 1/5
They tried to make this an online school just with an app, if I could teach myself then why would I be paying you.
Notifications Not Marked as Read 3/5
Since the last update, notifications are not being marked as read.
Does not work 1/5
Would be nice if this app actually works, i always get notifications from the app but when I open it it always says something went wrong.
Great when it works 1/5
By The Unliminator007
I was using this app for my school for about 2 months until it crashed. It prompted me to log back in and when I attempted, it kept saying “Log In Error” and my schools webpage error was shown to clear my cache. Ive cleared it many many times and still the same problem. Deleted and reinstalled numerous times and yet still no luck. I have to use my laptop to open up my courses for an inconvenience which can be fixed in a update. It also should be opening courses in a mobile version rather than desktop. Another thing to add in the coming updates.
Never works 1/5
Notifications stuck 3/5
I updated the app this morning and now notifications are not marking as read
I guess it’s a start...I guess 1/5
The app is flaky at best. Needs rework from ground up to improve interface and functionality. Several basic, very much needed features are missing, such as messaging capability. The app is very slow to load. Does not show home page feed and most functionality is missing unless you open the webpage, which pretty much eliminates the purpose of even having an app. Overall, pretty sad excuse of an app for such a large platform, seems to be something tossed together begrudgingly.
Great update. 5/5
Updated app works perfectly. Great for using with my classes. Highly recommend.
Good in theory... 1/5
It would be good if it worked. I got it to work once or twice and it was great. However, in total, I haven’t just used it once or twice; I’ve used it many more times and I’ve consistently had the “A Little Hiccup... The Internet is being fussy right now. Let’s try again?” error message pop up and despite refreshing and reconnecting to my network (even going to cellular data instead of Wi-Fi) I keep getting that message. Maybe it’s just my school’s security or something... but then this app should verify be able to bypass that security via a sign-in or other means.
In conclusion, if the app worked, it would be great since I wouldn’t have to go to my school’s website page every time and sign in. But it doesn’t work. Don’t get me wrong I was hoping it would work—work like everyone else’s reviews, it seems—but alas. No such luck. My experience: 1/5. Because that’s about how many times it seems to work.
UPDATE: Even after updating, this “hiccup”/“fetch” problem still persists.
Notification refresh 4/5
Great app but notification doesn't refresh after notification is viewed or, doesn't go down to zero after viewed. Problem arose after latest update. iPhone 7 plus
It’s OK, but not very useful 2/5
It doesn’t fill any unmet need. It acts like browser to access my course information. For most activities it opens my web browser anyway. It works fine, but just seems pointless.
It’s like someone at the college said, “Hey, we should get an app. Where do we get an app?” And everyone thought it sounded like a good idea, but didn’t know how to go about it. When the authors heard, they threw this together and sold as something shiny and new.
It does what it does. Not particularly useful, necessary, or compelling. No value added.
SNHU aka Southern New Hampshire University 5/5
By Stu Jr
I am currently a student and this app by Brightspace is Awesome because it shows all my courses currently being taken and the grades and assignments being done. It has a great UI and the design is Amazing in my opinion. Great Job devs !!!!
You should, fix this app 1/5
Won’t let me sign in.. cool app
New update 1/5
By Butt nipples po
Not working doesn’t stay signed in and when I sign in it doesn’t show anything but the refresh button
Updated app 1/5
Nothing works. Can’t even find my institution. It’s trash
Used to work perfectly... 2/5
It used to work very well for me for two solid semesters and now it won’t load my classes and kicks me out to have me sign back in. Please fix this glitch!
The perfect way to access my courses via mobile
