End of Life Date: November 15, 2019
At D2L, we constantly updating our product offerings to bring new solutions and features to market. As part of the ongoing life cycle of product innovation, we sometimes discontinue the sale and support of certain products and services. That time will be coming for Capture’s Polling Service on November 15, 2019.
What is the Capture Poling Service?
The Brightspace Polling Service allows customers to run quick polls during Capture webcasts, ie: What is your favorite subject?
Why are we making this decision?
D2L is committed to innovation and creating a platform that enables inspired learning experiences. Unfortunately, legacy technology can hold us back from offering the best solutions. Removing functionality is always a tough decision, as we know there will always be some users who find value and utility in the feature provided. Technology is constantly changing, and all software requires maintenance to stay up to date with the latest devices, browsers and user expectations. At the same time, in the background, we need to stay on top of security and privacy concerns to protect user data in the cloud.
Due to extremely low usage and limited functionality the decision was made to end of life the Polling Service within Capture.
What does this mean to me?
After November 15, 2019 you will no longer be able to run polls during a Capture session. Additionally, all data from any previous polls will be deleted and will not be able to be retrieved.
