Blackboard Learn UltraUA instructors now have the opportunity to explore Blackboard Learn Ultra Course View. Ultra Course View offers a simple, modern, intuitive, and consistent interface across devices and a simpler, more streamlined experience for instructors and students.

CIT began piloting practice or developmental Ultra Course View courses in Spring 2022 and invites instructors to begin exploring by requesting an Ultra Course View practice course.

We will continue to pilot live course sections using Ultra Course View in Summer 2023. Instructors interested in teaching with Ultra Course View can submit a request via the CIT support portal. We will help you determine whether your course meets participation requirements.

Any course offered through UA Online, or part of a fully online program offered through OTIDE, is not eligible for the live course pilot.

Following the pilot period, instructors will be able to choose whether to use Original Course View or Ultra Course View for live courses. Pilot feedback will inform the timeline, along with feature and third-party tool availability.
