Learn about the Ultra Experience and how it changes your course

Attend one of our monthly Ultra Experience orientation sessions. Learn about about training opportunities, course conversion, and other features exclusive to the Ultra Experience.

Two

Review your course & determine if it is current ready for Ultra

Use our course inventory form to assess the type and frequency of Original tools you use most often. This tool will help Instructional Technology staff align your course needs with the current features and functionality of the Ultra Course View.

Three

Discuss your Ultra adoption roadmap with instructional technology staff

Stop by one of our walk-in walk-in support clinics or schedule an appointment with our staff (via RT) to review your course inventory.

Four

Select & attend training that best fits your schedule or personal preference

We encourage faculty to attend at least one Ultra-specific training session. Several options are available including self-paced Ultra Essentials, Skill Builder workshops and webinars, and the Ultra Experience Boot Camp

Five

Decide on a strategy that fits your course or schedule: Convert or redesign

Faculty have several options with Ultra:

  • If you’re ready for Ultra, you can permanently switch your course to Ultra and update it after it is converted.

  • If you’re ready for Ultra, but you don’t want to convert your course, you can redesign your course from scratch.

  • If you need more time to prepare for Ultra, you can return your sandbox to the Original Course View and revise the content, organization, and tool settings for a smoother transition before converting later.
