  • Any user can become a member and can register by clicking the Become a Member
    button and filling out the Enrollment form on the Brightspace Community Register
    page
  • Any user can post a unique idea on the Product Idea Exchange page:
    • Once you create an account and log in, click the Product Idea Exchange link at the grey navigation bar
    • To post the idea, click the Post Idea link
    • You can search for the existing ideas by entering a key word in the the Find an Idea box at the top right
    • If you find the similar ideas, you can vote and add comments to an existing idea instead of creating a duplicate
    • View recent and popular feature requests
    • Subscribe to ideas so you can be alerted to new comments and changes in status.

GeorgiaVIEW Tips

Technical

Browsers:

  • Preferred web browsers for GeorgiaVIEW/GoVIEW are Google Chrome and Firefox - the latest versions, as well as Microsoft Edge.
    • For Mac computers, latest version of Apple Safari
    • Internet Explorer (IE) is not supported by D2L anymore. 
  • Learn about System and Software Requirements
  • Do it yourself and recommend your students to clear their web browser cache and cookies regularly, especially before starting quizzes. It’s a good practice to clear browser cache and cookies often to avoid GeorgiaVIEW/GoVIEW issues.

Course Work

  • Recommend your students to compose assignments within Microsoft Word, then copy and paste the text or attach the document to the assignment. It will help them to avoid timing-out and losing their work. Lost compositions are NOT recoverable.
  • To minimize issues while taking a quiz, ask your students to clear browser’s cache and cookies
