MercerOnline Blackboard Ultra Upgrade


Blackboard Learn is the learning management system used by Mercer County Community College faculty, staff, and students. As a result, Blackboard Learn continues to be an important platform for facilitating teaching and learning.

This year, we are planning to upgrade to the modernized Blackboard Ultra Experience! The upgrade will be done in two phases. Phase One is the introduction to Ultra Navigation and Phase Two is the Ultra Course View (UI). These upgrades provide a simple, intuitive, and streamlined course experience for faculty and students.

What is Learn Ultra?

Learn Ultra is the most modern, intuitive, and personalized Blackboard Learn user experience. Learn Ultra is characterized by simplified workflows and an accessible, fully responsive design—making it easier than ever to teach and learn from any device.


Learn Ultra is comprised of Base Navigation and the Ultra Course View.
