The 2021/22 academic year sees Teesside move to a new Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) – Blackboard Ultra. Ultra is a modern, responsive platform, designed to function on all devices (including mobile).
From May to August 2021 the Digital Transformation Team in SLAR designed and delivered a robust programme of CPD to our academic staff, equipping them with the knowledge and hands-on opportunities to develop their understanding of the platform and how they can best use it to design learning experiences for their students.
Beyond this CPD programme, we have made available a series of Self-Study CPD resources for all other colleagues, accessed through Blackboard Ultra by:
1. Login to Blackboard Ultra at https://bb.tees.ac.uk using your usual username and password.
2. From the Base Navigation, go to your Organisations.
3. Find the Organisation “Blackboard Ultra Self-Study CPD” and click to enter.
As usual, colleagues can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any further assistance.
