Customizing the Brightspace Virtual Assistant
EUS clients can include a custom greeting and a small number of custom buttons for end-user inquiries specific to the organization. Custom buttons can be used to provide users with information about frequently asked questions that are unrelated to D2L Support. These buttons appear immediately once the Brightspace Virtual Assistant is activated to provide users with this information right away.
Custom Button #1: How do I enroll/unenroll in courses?
Button Answer #1: For enrollment inquiries, please contact the Registrar’s Office at 123-456-7890.
Other examples include topics such as Financial Aid, Enrollment Inquiries, and Advisor Services.
Note: D2L recommends adding a maximum of 4-5 custom buttons to the AI for an optimal user experience. D2L EUS clients should work with their EUS Manager to set up and determine which buttons should be created.
In addition to custom buttons, your organization can customize the greeting that appears as soon as a user clicks on the Brightspace Virtual Assistant. For example;
