View courses in a timeline. Easily navigate to past, present, and future courses.
From the list where users' names appear, their course lists are available wherever they are in the system. Users can return to previous courses to review content, reuse material, and prepare their future courses.
Want to highlight the Courses page? You can change the page that appears to users after they log in.
On the Courses page, users can access all of their courses, no matter which course view they're delivered in. The Ultra Course View and the Original Course View appear seamlessly in the list. The Original Course View now appears with a new design, and any previous themes or color selections are overridden. Course cards include an Original Course View label when delivered in this format.
You can't reorder courses in the list. Courses are listed in alphabetical order and grouped by term with the newest courses first. Users' favorites appear at the top of the page.
Each course card lists the course title and instructor. If a course has multiple instructors, select Multiple Instructors for a list. Select More info to see the course ID, description, and schedule, if available.
Point to a course card menu to access management settings. Select the lock icon to change if a course is open and ready for students or remains private while an instructor works on it.
Users can view the Courses page as either a list or a grid. In grid view, instructors can customize the image on their course cards.
Course view options
After you enable the Ultra experience for your institution, you can determine the course view for instructors and students. You can specify whether a course uses the Ultra Course View or the Original Course View, or you can leave it up to the instructor to decide which course view fits their needs.
How do terms affect the Courses page?
In the Ultra experience, students and instructors always have access to their courses on the Courses page, no matter which course view the course is delivered in. The Ultra Course View and the Original Course View appear seamlessly in the list.
The Courses page displays all courses the current user is enrolled in, whether a student, instructor, or another type of course member. Courses are grouped based on their duration and associated terms.
You can allow users and guests to open and browse the course catalog in the Ultra experience. Available courses in the Original Course View appear in the course catalog. Users can open the courses, view contents, and self-enroll if allowed.
In Blackboard Learn, you can create courses in several ways. If you have appropriate privileges, you can create new courses, copy existing courses, create multiple courses at once with a batch file, and restore and import courses—all from the Administrator Panel.
