A clean look and feel, and responsive design
As we first announced back in April, D2L Brightspace underwent a cosmetic change on June 22, 2017 at 6:00 a.m.
This change gives Brightspace a modern and clean look and feel - D2L refers to this change as "external,Daylight". While it may look different, the site’s tools continue to work as they did before.
The main differences can be found on the Brightspace homepage, with the way you find your courses.
Why was this change necessary?
Aside from the obvious changes to the look of the site, there were some very important changes behind the scenes. This change introduces a responsive design, which allows D2L Brightspace to provide a consistent experience for all users, whether you’re accessing Brightspace from a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.
Ryerson is a busy campus that always has courses running. After consulting with representatives of different groups on campus, the change was scheduled for a date that had the lowest possible impact on the community.
