Exciting Changes Bound for Educator Preview!

Blog Post created by jbanks on May 3, 2018

Over 11,000 institutions in 48 countries are using Educator Preview to explore the Ultra experience for Blackboard Learn.


We are now excited to share that Educator Preview is undergoing development to equip you with the ability to teach and deploy live courses online – for free. The platform will still serve as the premier place to test drive the Ultra experience, but with the added bonus of having a course delivery option for you to teach with either the new Ultra Course View or the Original Course View.. You will be able to start teaching live courses in late June. 


To reflect the new vision and maturation of Educator Preview, we will be rebranding the platform as CourseSites and refreshing the log in page as well.


In the coming months, expect multiple communications from the Blackboard Learn Team with updates on the development of the new CourseSites platform.


If you have questions surrounding this initiative, please email us at community@blackboard.com or engage with us via the Blackboard Community site.


We look forward to introducing you to the new CourseSites platform!


The Blackboard Learn Team
