The UB Learns support team is committed to providing the most up-to-date educational resources that help instructors deliver innovative and engaging online content to their students.

Previous Updates

Past Term Student Enrollments

Past term student enrollments are now set as "Unavailable" the first business day after grades are due. Student grades, postings and interactions will continue to be visible to the instructor until the course is removed from UB Learns (one year after the semester ends).


Portfolios provide a way for students to efficiently collect and organize artifacts representative of work completed over time.

Bb Annotate

Instructors can use Bb Annotate to provide customizable feedback to students. Features of Bb Annotate include a sidebar summary view, freehand drawing tools, various color selections and much more.

Ultra Base Navigation

Ultra Base Navigation is an easy-to-navigate system menu that provides quick access to critical information, such as grading tasks, due dates and activities, for all your courses.
