In our previous blogpost, we announced our move to Blackboard Ultra.
Following the meeting of Academic Board, we can confirm that Phase 1 of the Ultra project, Ultra Base Navigation (UBN), will take place between 3 and 6 January 2023.
During this time, you will notice changes to the landing pages of Blackboard. Whilst UBN offers a new feel to Blackboard, course functionality and content will remain the same. We aim to maintain user access to Blackboard throughout this time, but it should be considered at risk for this period.
Further updates about UBN will follow to help prepare staff and students for this change to the landing page.
Once Phase 1 is complete, the Learning and Teaching Enhancement Unit will move to Phase 2, preparing for Ultra Courses in September 2023.
We are blogging throughout the project and key messages will be communicated via the Weekly Bulletin and IS news.
We will provide FAQs and have a dedicated webpage which will develop as the project progresses.
If you have any questions, please contact the Learning and Teaching Enhancement Unit (firstname.lastname@example.org).
