Blackboard Ultra: How do I get started? How do I navigate the online platform?


Introduction to the Site Navigation

Your Blackboard Learn site is using the Ultra experience. This is the newest interface and provides you with the latest features. The Ultra navigational experience provides you with key workflow tools through the base navigation.

From the base navigation, you can:

  • Access your profile
  • View recent activity
  • Enter a course
  • View organizations
  • View and respond to messages
  • View and grade activities
  • Access additional tools

The base navigation is always available to you, no matter where you are within the Learn site. You can move back to this location at any time by simply clicking the base navigation, and all other layers will close (even if they have a close button). 

How to Navigate the Site

In the below video, we will explore the overall navigational components of the Ultra experience in Learn, and the responsive design functionality of the platform.
