Blackboard Learn Ultra Base Profile Setup

As of December 20, 2018, you will see a change to our Blackboard Learn portal, now using Ultra Base Navigation. This may leave you with questions on how to get going and personalize the page to yourself. If you’re one of those people, then you have come to the right place.

1. Upon Logging in for the first time you will be met with the following welcome messages. Be sure to give them a read as they will give you the basics of everything that has changed and how it is to your benefit. Once you have had your fill click the arrows, outlined in the following image, OR scroll to the bottom of the page and select “Get Started”.

Introduction Pages

2. Once into your Blackboard Learn account follow this upcoming outline to personalize the page to yourself. Your profile picture will appear on course cards, rosters, and in discussions, conversations, and messages. Instructors will see student profile pictures throughout courses in the same areas and in their gradebook and attendance. It's easier to remember a name when someone can pair it with a face so help each other out! Please note, when uploading your first avatar, it may take up to 5 minutes for the image to show up.
