Blackboard Learn Ultra:  Base Navigation Basics

Spring 2020!!  Blackboard Learn Ultra Base Navigation

Say good bye to the old Blackboard Learn  and say hello to Bb Learn Ultra Base Navigation, Our  next step in progressing to Blackboard Learn's more modern, intuitive navigation. This will NOT change how your courses look yet! Ultra Base Navigation will only change the Blackboard Welcome Screen and provides quick access to the most critical information from across all your courses. This new navigation has a sleek, modern look and feel and saves you time with simpler workflows and easier access to important information.

We will continue to use the "Original Course View" initially for all courses.  Instructors will have the choice to preview their courses with the "Ultra" experience and make a decision to progress to Ultra early on.  Eventually, ALL courses will be created in "Ultra" format only.
