Enhancing the Student Experience

Moving LearnJCU to the Blackboard Ultra Platform

In 2018/19, LearnJCU is moving to the Blackboard Ultra platform for a modern and streamlined student experience.

Ultra is built from the ground up to be accessible, consistent and responsive using any device.  Ultra enables students to easily access key learning resources, grades and activities wherever they are.

For staff, helpful prompts and a simpler navigation system combine with new assessment, content and activity creation tools to allow more efficient development and management of subject sites.

For news, system status, guides and support visit jcu.edu.au/learn.

Transform will work with course teams to transition all digital resources, assessments and activities into Ultra.

Phase One is now complete with over 50 subjects transitioning to Ultra and ready to go for Teaching Period 2, 2018. The second half of 2018 will focus on transitioning all first-year subjects into Ultra.
