Three levels of language packs

Language packs present Blackboard Learn using language and cultural norms matched to different audiences. Language pack preferences are defined at the system level, the course or organization level, and finally at the user level.

System level

Your institution defines one language pack as the system default. This is the language pack that appears when no other language pack is specified at the course level or at the user level.

Course level

Your institution can assign a language pack that is different from the default to make all users in a course view the same language pack. For example, if you are teaching a Spanish language class, you may want to select Spanish for the course-level language.

User level

Individuals may choose their preferred language packs unless a language pack choice has been set to be enforced.

Customized names for content areas and tools aren't changed with the language pack. These values stay the same for all language packs. The default names in the system are translated and appear differently in each language pack.

Set a language pack

At this time, instructors can't change language packs at the course level in the Ultra experience. Administrators can set course languages, and users can choose their preferred language packs.

To change the language at a user level:

  1. Select Language on your profile.
  2. Select a language pack from the menu.
  3. Select Submit.
