Converting existing content 

  • There is a conversion process for existing content. You have the ability to preview your existing content in the Ultra Course format after the conversion to decide if you would prefer to convert or build fresh. You will be given a conversion exception report that indicates any features that you had been using in your Original Course that may have changed or no longer exist in Ultra Courses. 

  • Please note that the conversion report can only review native Blackboard content, it will not include information about your publisher content or add-ons. OIT recommends you check those links. Watch this YouTube video for more information on the conversion and preview processes.
