Individual vendors develop tools at different paces depending on available integrations for Blackboard web services and REST API integrations. Tools listed here to not represent the full roadmap under development by vendors at the time of this FAQ's publication. Not all vendors provided information to UMBC or a clear timeline for Ultra support.

This list focuses on third-party tools for Blackboard. Please review these FAQs for other functionality:

Tools may appear in Ultra under another name or form and with different functionality and customizations. These will be noted under comments. Please review linked documentation for additional information.
