BB ULTRA BASE NAVIGATION - It's All About That Base!
Attendees will learn how Ultra Base Navigation allows instructors and students to more easily access important course information, including learning materials, grades, messages, calendars, and relevant links arranged in an Activity feed. The webinar will also cover how Base Navigation makes more accessible for students using mobile devices and provides a simple, consistent experience regardless of how it is accessed. 

This webinar dives into "ultra-prepping."  Participants will get a granular view of what needs to change in their courses in order for them to more easily "make the switch" to Bb Ultra.  Topics covered include course organization & folder structure, course tools, test questions types, and more!

A "must attend" for Blackboard instructors interested in teaching in Ultra Course View (UCV), this webinar walks participants through the new Blackboard Learn Ultra course view.  Topics covered include, navigating the new course view, adding content, content types, the new content editor, course conversations, grading, accommodations, course messages and more.

Bb Learn Ultra has a number of communication tools that are designed to build student engagement within your online/blended/web-enhanced courses. In this webinar, we will look at each of them.
