Ultra Course View
Impact: Instructors, System and Course Roles with privileges to manage question banks
Outside of course content, test questions are one of the most valued artifacts in a course. Instructors often spend a great deal of time building and refining banks of test questions. These banks are important as they enable question reuse across various assessments. Up until now, instructors could only import existing banks into their Ultra courses. Instructors could use the questions in their assessments. But instructors could not create new question banks or manage questions in existing banks.

With this enhancement, instructors will be able to:
- Create new, empty question banks in their Ultra courses,
- View and search for questions within a question bank, and
- Add, edit, and delete all aspects of a question within new and existing question banks.

This functionality is available both on the desktop and in the mobile app. Instructors may access these options from Manage Banks in the Details and Actions.
