Having done the background work required in preparation for our move to Ultra, Blackboard is available again, 4 days ahead of schedule.

During the next couple of weeks if you see anything you don’t expect or anything reacts strangely, please contact expert-academy@uwl.ac.uk and if possible provide a screenshot of the issue.  We do not expect any problems because we have had great support from ExPERT Academy staff, IT, the library and the school/college and professional service BB champions that has allowed us to do extensive testing.

Starting towards the end of next semester we will be offering extensive training for staff who will be using Ultra from next summer. This is an exciting opportunity for us to really embed the UWL Pedagogy, active and scaffolded learning. to ensure that our improvement in NSS continues in the future. We look forward to working with you.
