Ultra Base Navigation provides a better way to navigate Blackboard Learn

What is the Ultra Base Navigation?

It is a modern, intuitive navigation menu that lives outside of courses. It includes links to new pages such as the Activity Stream, that provides quick access to the most critical information consolidated from all your courses.

  • Modern, intuitive user experience.
  • Works well on mobile devices.
  • See something that needs your attention? Just click on it and you will be taken directly there, minimizing clicks and saving time.
  • Optional Ultra Course View. With the Ultra Base Navigation, interested faculty will be able to preview Blackboard’s new course interface, the Ultra Course View.
