How it works?

Blackboard Ultra core tools include a Journal â€“ for reflective activity that prompts students to make a series of solo entries over a chosen duration, Discussions â€“ for collaborative activity that can facilitate online discussion between instructor/students/peers, Tests â€“ for benchmarking activity that allows students to gauge their own understanding of their learning through answering questions.

Digital Learning activities can also be facilitated in Ultra via third-party tools in Content Market or linked/embedded via Microsoft 365 apps.
