What's new in D2L Brightspace?
If you think this 'Grand' navigation bar has too many options for your class/students, consider using either the 'Classic' or 'Minimalist' navbar. Please note that choosing one of these three will greatly help the eLearning team if/when new tools become available and the course navbars need to be updated.
To ensure that you are using one of the three recommended navbars:
- Click on the ‘Edit Course’ navbar option.
- Click on the ‘Navigation & Themes’ link.
- From the ‘Active Navbar’ drop-down list, select the appropriate navbar layout.
- Click the ‘Apply’ button.
