  • New AI features now available in Blackboard Learn Ultra

    AI Capabilities Now Available in Bb Learn Ultra

    Blackboard Learn Ultra now has an AI Design Assistant which uses artificial intelligence to streamline the course building process, giving faculty a head start on creating engaging, effective Bb Learn Ultra courses. The AI Design Assistant in Blackboard Learn Ultra leverages AI technologies to assist faculty to develop content structure for their courses, give test question suggestions, help with designing rubrics, suggestions for Discussion and Journal prompts, add royalty free images, and more, which overall makes more time available for faculty to teach! To get started, watch Anthology's video overview on Bb Learn Ultra's New AI Features and/or visit Blackboard Help for Instructors. To learn more about how Anthology is approaching the use of AI in their products, visit the Anthology Trustworthy AI Approach page. 

  • Thank you Bb Learn Ultra Champions

    Bb Learn Ultra Pilot Champions

    ETMS-Instructional Technology gives a shout out to UNI's Blackboard Learn Ultra Pilot Champions. They dedicated several days during the summer (2023) to participate in training and learn as much as possible about Blackboard Learn Ultra in a short amount of time. Then they taught courses using Blackboard Learn Ultra for Fall 2023. Additionally, they have graciously agreed to the best of their ability to help their colleagues with the transition to Ultra. See who the Ultra Pilot Champions are from your college.

  • Faculty, are you staying on Blackboard Learn Original for Spring 2024? On demand Videos are available to assist with this and with other eLearning tools.

    On Demand eLearning Videos

    For those planning to stay on Blackboard Learn ORIGINAL for Spring 2024, check out our On Demand Workshop Videos that address primary features of Blackboard Learn ORIGINAL as well as Panopto, Zoom, Poll Everywhere, and Turnitin. Additionally, two videos address how to make your online course materials accessible for all students: 1) From Reactive Accommodations to Proactive Accessibility and 2) Improving Accessibility in Your Course with Blackboard Ally. We also have a relatively new workshop called “Using Data Analytics for eLearning Tools to Inform Your Teaching” which addresses tools in our eLearning Suite that provide analytics. This includes Bb Ally for Blackboard Learn, Panopto, Zoom and Blackboard Learn’s Retention Center that helps you discover which students in your course are at risk.
