As many of your know, there is a bug in 3700.3.0 in the test/staging environments where banner/logo images cannot be updated in the Ultra Base Navigation's Institution page.

Article # 000050739
A fix has been created and is currently going through QA.  There has been some conflicting information as to how this updated version would be pushed out.  I found out late last night if the updated version passes QA, it is currently planned to be pushed out to test/staging environments Friday, May 31, 2019.  Please note, this is the plan.  If the update does not pass its tests, the push may be rescheduled.
As always we are encouraged to watch support bulletins for updates.

Hi everyone, 


Thanks again for your feedback on how we document Learn user privileges on We conducted 10 interviews with administrators and IT professionals from a variety of institutions. You also provided us with different perspectives based on your current Blackboard Learn deployments as well as future plans, such as adoption of the Ultra Experience and Ultra Course View. We really enjoyed learning more about you, your institutions, and how you use our Help site! 


We pulled together your suggestions and we determined a few ways we could improve. Here are the plans we’ll be working on in the near-term: 

  • Help topic improvements: 
  • Provide a “getting started” page to bring together the context, approaches, and impact of updating privileges and roles. 
  • Evaluate how we link between pages and update where it’s lacking. 
  • Spreadsheet improvements: 
  • Clearly show groups of privileges and provide a better way to sort based on this information. 
  • Add a column to show if a privilege applies to Original and/or Ultra. 
  • Add descriptions for all privileges. 


You also provided some great suggestions about how we could improve the experience in the product. We’ve shared that with our colleagues to consider how it aligns with future development plans. 


The Content Design team strives to help you and your communities teach and learn confidently with Blackboard products. We value your feedback and thank you again for participating in our project! We hope to see you at BbWorld, where we have more plans to test and discuss our help content with you. 


Have a great week, 

Kelley MacEwen 

Sr. Content Designer
