Blackboard are currently developing a new VLE product called Learn Ultra. It has been available for institutions to adopt for two years and some institutions have already moved fully from Learn Classic to Learn Ultra (including the Universities of Aberdeen and Dundee, for example).  

 The migration to Learn Ultra can be completed using a phased approach which focuses on specific areas in Learn.  

 We are currently (2021) initiating a project to complete the first phase of our move to Learn Ultra.  This work will culminate in a change to the entry pages of Learn when we will switch Ultra Base Navigation on. This updates the top-level navigational aspect of Learn, giving it a more modern appearance, designed with accessibility and responsiveness in mind. It also provides students with an activity stream, consolidated cross-course information, which makes content and activities easier to access.  It replaces the current ‘My Learn’ page and is cleaner and more functional for the user.
