New Brillium Navigational Experience

One of the biggest improvements to Brillium in the 2020 release, is the improved menu navigation.  Now, Brillium Assessment Builder users can quickly access all areas of the application from any page.


Among the new features in the Brillium 2020 platform updates, is the revised menu system which provides quick access to all areas of Brillium.

In this release we are strictly focused on improving the Brillium administrator and author interface and workflow. At the heart of this focus, is the new and improved Brillium Tile Menu, located in the upper left corner of the screen. To access the menu, simply click menu icon located in the upper left corner of the screen.

The biggest change we are making in 2020 is improved navigation. We have completely re-organized how all of the Brillium features are accessed throughout the assessment platform. The result is increased productivity to increased speed and productivity throughout your entire workflow.

In the upper left corner of the Brillium application is the Brillium “b”. When selected, the application menu appears. Here you will be able to quickly jump to every functional area of the platform.
