Blackboard Refresh August 2022 - Ultra Base Navigation

An update was applied to Blackboard Learn on the 9th August 2022.

Ultra Base Navigation (UBN) has been applied to our Blackboard Learn environment. UBN is the first stage of Ulster’s project to upgrade to Blackboard Ultra by Summer 2023.

The video below outlines the changes and how they fit into the wider project plan to upgrade to Blackboard Ultra.

What is the Blackboard Learn Ultra Base Navigation?

Ultra Base Navigation is an overhaul of the layout and appearance of Blackboard Learn, designed to improve the virtual learning environment’s accessibility and mobility. The changes will minimally impact modules (or other areas) in Blackboard Learn and the main changes will be with the landing page when you login. On login, you will now be presented with an Activity Stream which provides contextualised information related to your role in specific Blackboard areas.
