The Blackboard Learn Ultra Experience is undeniably a significant change from the Original Experience, for both the Base Navigation and the Course View. There are a large number of factors to consider before implementing the Ultra Experience, like developing a new Institution Page, testing features and integrations, conducting a pilot and focus groups, communicating with faculty and students about the change and providing training and support for faculty on adopting the Ultra Course View. In this session, Northern Illinois University will share their approach to preparing for enabling the Ultra Base Navigation and their support plan for Ultra Course View. In addition, we will share the resources we developed for the implementation including timelines, templates, checklists and more.
