UB Learns, powered by Blackboard, is the centrally supported Learning Management System (LMS) at UB.
UB Learns provides faculty with an online environment to create, deliver and manage their course content, as well as monitor participation and assess performance among learners.
This help website is a quick-start guide. For detailed information about any of these topics, see the official Blackboard manual.
UB Learns is available 24 hours per day, seven days a week.
Beginning with spring 2021 courses, faculty will have a choice between two different course views in UB Learns: Original Course View and Ultra Course View.
Join the UB Learns support team as they build a new course site using Ultra Course View, highlighting advantages and some of the challenges of the new course view.
The update includes improvements to existing tools, a new accessibility checker and the ability to display computer code. Some icons have changed (source code is now represented by the <> icon), and the options to embed files, images, videos and mashups are now available by clicking on the plus icon (use the Insert Local File option for images).
