Original CourseSites Users:


As a reminder, the original CourseSites platform will be decommissioned on December 31st. To prepare for this retirement date, we suggest taking the following steps:


  • Learn more about the Ultra experience by watching a quick video, reading a brief overview, or viewing video tutorials.
  • Visit our CourseSites FAQ page to familiarize yourself with frequently asked questions regarding this transition,
  • Register for the new CourseSites, as your login credentials will not work for the new platform.
  • Visit the Institution Page within the new CourseSites environment for helpful resources (you can find the Institution Page located on the Ultra navigation menu on the left-hand side).
  • Export your courses from the original CourseSites platform and import them into the new CourseSites platform before December 31st - detailed export instructions can be found here and import instructions here.


Additionally, in a continued effort to provide you with the utmost transparency during this transition, we want to inform you of an upcoming maintenance window which will impact both the Original and new CourseSites platforms. Beginning January 2nd, both platforms will be unavailable from 7:00 am ET to 7:00 pm ET. This period of downtime will be for scheduled updates and necessary migration activities. The new CourseSites platform will be back online on January 3rd at 7:00 am ET. 


Thank you for being a valued CourseSites user. We look forward to continuing to provide you with an unparalleled and quality online teaching environment in 2019!

CourseSites Users:

As a reminder, this June we’re relaunching CourseSites to provide you with a more dynamic online teaching experience. This cloud-based platform will provide both learners and educators with a more personalized, proactive, and intuitive user interface. We can’t wait to introduce this new and improved platform in the coming months.

To prepare for the transition, we do encourage you to keep your courses up-to-date and have an updated export ready to go. Once the new environment is up and running, you can import your course(s) into the new platform and be good to go. You can find detailed export instructions

We’re committed to providing you with a smooth transition process and encourage you to actively engage with us throughout this initiative via two support channels we’ve created to address your most pressing questions:

Again, we look forward to introducing you to the new CourseSites platform in June!
