Coming up: What is it like to teach with Blackboard Learn Ultra webinar

(9 April 2021)

As part of our efforts to introduce our new Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) to staff across the University, we will be running Wednesday Weekly Webinars all about Blackboard Learn Ultra. On Wednesday 14 April from 11am-11.30am, we’ll be hosting an online panel discussion to hear about Blackboard Learn Ultra from staff who’ve already taught on the platform during our pilot programme. Simply visit our Wednesday Weekly Webinars pages and add the event to your calendar and learn more about Blackboard Learn Ultra.

From September 2021, we will be transitioning to Blackboard Learn Ultra as our Virtual Learning Environment. While duo will remain available to staff and students for some time to come, all teaching will take place on Blackboard Learn Ultra for the 21-22 academic year.

To support staff to get ready for this transition, we are running Wednesday Weekly Webinars covering all different areas of Blackboard Learn Ultra. Staff are encouraged to attend these sessions, running for 30 minutes every Wednesday in April.

Full details can be found on the Wednesday Weekly Webinars website, as well as recordings from the previous sessions including the most recent demo webinar held on Wednesday 7 April.
