Choose Between Blackboard Learn ORIGINAL and Blackboard Learn ULTRA
For the Spring 2024 semester, you have the opportunity to convert your course to the new Blackboard Learn Ultra interface. Only PRIMARY instructors will be allowed to make the request for their Spring course to be moved to Ultra. All Spring 2024 courses will initially be created in Blackboard Learn Original. To convert your Spring course to Ultra, please fill out this form for each section that you want to teach in the Ultra interface. If you plan on using Ultra in the Spring, please do NOT make any changes to the Spring 2024 Blackboard Learn Original course until we have completed the conversion process to Ultra for you.
