Blackboard Ultra Learning Activities

Use some of the interactive tools in Blackboard Ultra to engage your students in asynchronous activities to encourage independent study.

Key information

Learning activities (or self-scheduled learning) include a combination of independent activities such as readings and guided screencasts/ videos, alongside practical activities, reflective writing, participation in asynchronous discussion and quizzing.

How it works?

The core tools that Blackboard Ultra provides for Learning Activities are the Journal â€“ a reflective activity that prompts students to make a series of entries over a chosen duration. It can include text, images, video, and file attachments, Discussions â€“ a collaborative activity that can facilitate discussion between teacher and students (including peer discussion) and Tests â€“ a benchmarking activity that allows students to gauge their own understanding of their learning through answering questions.
