Blackboard Ultra


Course tools are supported by the Learning Management System (LMS) that assist instructors in communicating, tracking, and building virtual learning experiences.


Accommodations help make course content available for all students. They allow for inclusive learning experiences for students.

Some items that you can set up for students:

  • due date accommodations

  • time limit accommodations

  • extra attempts


Announcements are an ideal way to post time-sensitive information critical to course success. Including:

  • due dates for assignments and projects

  • clarification of materials

  • scheduling updates

New announcements appear when students enter a course. They will need to close the new announcement before they can view the course content. All announcements can be viewed through the Announcement link under Details & Actions


Attendance is a tool integrated directly into Blackboard to help faculty track student attendance within their course.
