Blackboard Ultra


We are fast approaching our planned Blackboard Ultra conversion. The change will be taking place on Saturday, June 6th starting at 5 AM. We expect to have completed the conversion by 7 AM, barring any unforeseen setbacks. We have taken every precaution that we can to ensure a successful transition. Please avoid using Blackboard during this time frame.



Beginning June 6th, when you log into Blackboard, you will see a new, fresh look and feel along with a much-improved experience. Here are some of the highlights of Blackboard Ultra:


  1. New and improved user experience: Blackboard Ultra offers a user experience that features a modern, intuitive, and consistent interface on any device. The features have been redesigned to be more efficient and save you time.
  2. Simplified navigation: Everything is just one click away. The new Ultra Base Navigation provides immediate access to the most critical information you need to be successful.
  3. Use on any device: Blackboard users will be able to easily access Blackboard from any deviceincluding tablets and smartphones – using either the mobile web browser or the Blackboard and Blackboard Instructor apps.
