Old Blackboard Ultra Overview

January 2020 Upgrade to Blackboard Ultra

Next year, Blackboard Learn, the Learning Management System (LMS) utilized by Pace University faculty, staff and students, will be upgraded to Blackboard Learn Ultra.

In addition to new features increasing ease-of-use, next year's upgrade will give Blackboard a fresh look and feel, and introduces the Blackboard Learn Ultra Course View that provides you and your students with a simple, streamlined and more uniform course experience across multiple platforms such as laptops and mobile devices.

The switchover will occur on January 2nd, 2020. It will not require an outage, and should not affect the speed or functioning of the system.

The following is a quick overview of the tools that will become available following the upgrade, and the changes they bring.

Blackboard Ultra Experience - Navigation

The new Ultra experience is a completely redesigned interface with simplified, intuitive workflows, a modern look and feel, and an improved mobile experience. Everyone will see the new Ultra landing page and navigation from May 23rd, 2019, though all courses will retain the look, feel and functionality of the “original” Blackboard experience until January 2nd, 2020.

Base Navigation Highlights

The overall design of Blackboard has not changed significantly in 9+ years. The new look and feel of Blackboard Ultra is clean and contemporary. Through simplified icons and a consistent visual design, the new Ultra experience feels modern and innovative.
