Instructional Design 


AI Design Assistant – Context picker for Learning Modules, Assignments, Discussions, and Journals

Ultra Experience 
Ultra Course View 
Impact: Instructors 


Related topics: Learning modulesAssignmentsDiscussions, and Journals 

Context selection is key for tailoring course content generated with the AI Design Assistant. The context picker also helps to ground generated content in an appropriate context.

 We are extending the context picker for test questions to other generation workflows: 

  • Learning modules 
  • Authentic assignments 
  • Authentic discussions 
  • Authentic journals
 

When Ultra documents are selected as context, file attachments on the Ultra document will also be included as context for all context pickers.


For administrators: You have to enable AI features to use the Context Picker for Learning Modules, Assignments, Discussions, and Journals. In Installed Tools, select Settings for AI Design Assistant and Unsplash. The default state is off. When this feature is on, the privilege will need to be assigned to course roles as necessary, such as Instructor. The privilege to assign is "Use AI features."


 

Persistent navigation for Learning Modules

Related topic: Learning Modules


To improve students' navigation in a learning module, we updated the navigation bar. Now the navigation bar is sticky and remains visible as students vertically scroll through content. Students no longer need to scroll back up to the top of content to access the navigation tools. 

For administrators: This feature is available for all Ultra courses. There are no configurations needed.


 

Competency Based Education 

 

Student feedback remains visible to students regardless of release condition settings 
Blackboard Learn SaaS 
Ultra Experience 
Ultra Course View 
Impact: Instructors, Students


Instructors may want to control access to course content using release conditions. This is helpful for providing custom learning paths through course content. The release conditions include an option to show or hide content to/from students before they meet release conditions. We've modified how these settings impact the students' view of feedback from instructors. Now instructors can set release conditions without any impact to feedback to students.  

In the past, when an instructor selected the option to hide content, students could view associated grades but not the feedback. We have corrected this to ensure that students can always review feedback.  


For administrators: This feature is available for all Ultra courses. There are no configurations needed. 

 

Tests & Assignments 

 

Default question points value changed from 10 to 1

Ultra Experience

Impact: Instructors


We recognize that manually adjusting the point value for questions can be time-consuming and error prone. Based on valuable client feedback, we are changing the default point value from 10 to 1. Moving forward, any newly created questions will have a default point value of 1. This change helps reduce the need for manual adjustments.  


Questions copied from another assessment retain the designated point value.


For administrators: This feature is available for all Ultra courses. There are no configurations needed. 


 

Rubric API Enhancements

Impact: Administrators


Related topic: Learn APIs

Rubrics are fundamental tools for instructors, aiding in the fair and consistent evaluation of graded work. Now, administrators can leverage the enhanced API to perform the complete spectrum of CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations for rubrics.

Developers will gain access to the following endpoints:

  • POST /learn/api/public/v1/courses/{courseId}/rubrics
  • PATCH or DELETE /learn/api/public/v1/courses/{courseId}/rubrics/{rubricId}

For administrators: The REST integration user must have the following entitlements:

  • For POST method: "Course/Organization Control Panel (Tools) > Rubrics > Create Rubric"
  • For PATCH method: "Course/Organization Control Panel (Tools) > Rubrics > Edit Rubric"
  • For DELETE method: "Course/Organization Control Panel (Tools) > Rubrics > Delete Rubric"
 

Duplicate questions in Assessments, Forms, and Question Banks

Impact: Instructors



This enhancement is a direct response to client feedback.

Sometimes an instructor may want to have a question repeated with the same answer options but a different question. The "Duplicate" option allows instructors to quickly copy an existing question within the same assessment (test, assignment, form) or in a question bank. This feature eliminates the need for manual duplication. It simplifies the process of creating multiple questions with the same answer options.

Instructors may edit the question text and answer options. There are no changes to how an instructor edits the question.


For administrators: This feature is available for all Ultra courses. There are no configurations needed. 

 

Likert answer options expanded to include 4 and 6 
Blackboard Learn SaaS   
Ultra Experience

Impact: Instructors


Instructors can now create Likert scale questions with 4 or 6 answer options. This allows for greater granularity in student responses. An even number of answer options also supports the creation of questions where students cannot select a neutral option. This enhancement is in response to valuable user feedback.


For administrators: This feature is available for all Ultra courses. There are no configurations needed.

 

Auto-submitted indicator in attempt logs

Understanding the context of student submissions is helpful to instructors. Now the Attempt Log indicates whether a submission is manual or automatic. This indicator provides instructors with deeper insights into student behaviors. This addition also allows instructors to better track their student progress. 


For administrators: This feature is available for all Ultra courses. There are no configurations needed.

 

Communication & Collaboration


Anonymous posts for Discussions

Related topics: Create Discussions for InstructorsDiscussions for Students 


Discussions play a pivotal role in nurturing peer-to-peer interaction and critical thinking. Students need to feel free to express their ideas and opinions without fear of judgement. To support this, we've added an option for instructors to allow anonymous posts in ungraded discussions. This feature provides flexibility for instructors. They can toggle anonymity on or off as the discussion progresses. Any existing anonymous posts keep their anonymity. 


For administrators: This feature is available for all Ultra courses. There are no configurations needed.

 

Flexible Grading 

 

Usability improvements for flexible grading
Blackboard Learn SaaS 
Ultra Experience   
Ultra Course View 
Impact: Instructors, Students 


Streamlining the grading process saves instructors time and reduces their workload. We have implemented several enhancements to Flexible Grading in response to instructor feedback. All the enhancements target improved usability and efficiency.  


We relocated the attempt selector to improve visibility and efficiency. It is now nearer to the attempt grade pill. This allows instructors to switch between a student's attempts during grading.  


The grading interface now displays a single grade pill. This provides a more intuitive grading workflow. The single grade pill also prevents accidental grade overrides. 

Overriding the final grade is now an explicit grading option. The three-dot menu next to the attempt grade pill now includes an Override Final Grade option. When selected, an Override label appears above the grade pill. Here the instructor can adjust the final grade for the submission. 


The submission receipt for the selected attempt now displays beneath the attempt selector.


For administrators: The Flexible Grading experience is a available behind a feature flag. The feature is on by default to ensure that the Flexible Grading interface is available to users by default. You can turn off the Flexible Grading interface by setting this feature to Off. 

 

Add question feedback when grading by student

Ultra Experience

Impact: Instructors, Students


Instructors can now provide contextual feedback by student on all question types. Question level feedback promotes deeper understanding and personal growth among students. Question level feedback complements the existing capabilities of overall submission feedback and automated feedback for auto-graded questions.


Note: We are targeting the 3900.91 May release for per-question feedback when grading tests by questions.  

Once students have submitted their tests and scores are posted, students can access the feedback. Students can access both overall feedback and question-specific feedback.

For administrators: This feature is available for all Ultra courses. There are no configurations needed. 


 

Gradebook 

 

Calculations changed from using BigDecimal to BigFraction 
Blackboard Learn SaaS and Learn 9.1 
Ultra Experience and Original Experience 
Ultra Course View and Original Course View 
Impact: Instructors, Students


Instructors need a gradebook that supports diverse grading scenarios. We are changing the software library used to perform calculations in calculated columns and the overall course grade.

Example: A course contains 3 assignments worth 22 points each. The student scores 13/22 on the first assignment, 14/22 on the second assignment, and 15/22 on the third assignment. An instructor creates a calculated column to calculate the average of these assignments.  

Using the new software library, BigFraction, the average will calculate as 14/22.

With the former software library, BigDecimal, the average would incorrectly calculate to 13.99/22. The new software library ensures calculations compute as expected.


For administrators: This change applies to both Ultra and Original courses. There are no configurations needed. 

 

Overall Grade added to the Gradebook Download 
Blackboard Learn SaaS

Impact: Instructors 


Some instructors download grades from the gradebook. Downloading grades to applications like Microsoft Excel is helpful for further analysis.

Now, instructors can choose to include the Overall Grade for students in the downloaded gradebook. This additional data point helps provide a comprehensive view of student performance.

For administrators: This feature is available for all Ultra courses. There are no configurations needed. 


 

Edit gradebook category for Partner Cloud content

Some instructors want to change the gradebook category for third-party content and tools (e.g., Cengage). Now instructors can edit the category information from the gradebook.

For administrators: This feature is available for all Ultra courses. There are no configurations needed. 


 

Learner Progression & Personalized Experience

Related Topic: Student Activity Details for Assessments

Depending on the culture, personal name lengths vary. To continue demonstrating our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we adjusted long names in the Student Activity report for assessments. This change ensures that names are visible on a variety of devices. This helps instructors avoid confusion when viewing students with similar names. 

Also, instructors can now sort the student list by last name in small devices so they can organize the list easily. 


For administrators: This feature is available for all Ultra courses. There are no configurations needed.

 

Integrations

 

Delete a deployment ID

Impact: Administrators


Multiple deployments allow administrators to integrate to an LTI 1.3 third party tool that manages different credentials through the institutional hierarchy. Now administrators can delete these deployments and remove tenants that are no longer active.

For administrators: Deployment management is available for both the Ultra and Original Experience.


 

Converting Building Block content to LTI: Student submissions and feedback

Impact: Administrators


Related topic: Convert Building Blocks to LTI

We remain committed to ensuring a smooth transition experience from building blocks to LTI. We have further enhanced our conversion tool. Now administrators can include student submissions and instructor feedback.

During the conversion process, the tool prompts administrators to select whether to include the content links added in student submissions and feedback. If selected, those links in student submissions and feedback transition to LTI format within the selected course.
 

We encourage administrators to review the conversion tool settings. Please make informed choices based on your institution's requirements. 


For administrators: If a course contains content from Kaltura, Panopto, Echo360, MediaSite and/or ShareStream building blocks, you must perform the conversion process for each building block.


 

Announcements API Enhancements: Creator Information

Impact: Administrators


Related topic: Learn APIs

Course announcements are vital for timely communication in courses. Some courses contain users in varying roles. Identifying announcement authors via REST API is challenging for users. We've enhanced the Announcement API by adding the "Creator" parameter. This reveals the user IDs of the authors of both Course and System Announcements.

With the new "Creator" parameter, developers can now identify the authors of announcements via API. Administrators can also filter announcements by the creator.


For administrators: The required entitlements for Announcements API remain unchanged.

 

Learn Core & Security

Administrators must manage storage used by courses. We have enhanced group file size limits to now also apply to the Content Collection. This change helps administrators ensure responsible usage of storage across the platform.


For administrators: We recommend that you review any extensions and limits previously set.


 

Upgrade to Ultra

 

Option to convert Content Areas to Learning Modules 
Blackboard Learn SaaS 
Ultra Experience 
Ultra Course View 
Impact: Instructors and Administrators 


In previous releases, Content Areas converted to Folders when converting courses. We updated conversion so administrators can choose if Content Areas convert to Learning Modules or folders. 

Converting to Learning Modules is helpful for the following types of courses: 
 

  • Original Courses using more than one Content Area to organize course materials 
  • Courses migrating from Canvas, Brightspace, and Moodle Learning Management Systems 


The default setting is to convert Content Areas to Learning Modules.
 

For administrators: This feature is available for all Ultra courses. There are no configurations needed. 


 A new configuration option is available on the Ultra Experience Management page. The default state is ON. When OFF, Content Areas will convert to Folders instead of Learning Modules.

Categories provide a way for instructors to group assessments together in the Gradebook. Instructors can use categories to adjust the weighting of items in the Gradebook. Now when importing a Moodle package (.mbz), categories are preserved. Instructors will have the option to align these categories to assessments. 


For administrators: This feature is available for all courses. There are no configurations needed.

Updating availability and due dates after a course copy, import, or a conversion can take time. We're making it easier for instructors to make date adjustments for any item on the Batch Edit page. Instructors now have the option to change the due date and availability (Show On and Hide After) for any item. 

 
For administrators: This feature is available for all Ultra courses. There are no configurations needed.
