Proposed Migration Timeline

Spring 2020

During the spring of 2020, the Ultra migration team will be preparing the Ultra implementation and training materials for campus. The first step is moving to SaaS.

SOFTWARE AS A SERVICE (SAAS)

In addition, the dynamic technological landscape has created a demand for cloud-based/ ‘Software as a Service,’ or SaaS, LMS services. Both options offer customers the ability to purchase subscriptions, alleviate server issues, as well as receive upgrades with no downtime for customers. This business technology shift mirrors the changes taking place on campuses across the United States, and locally at the California Community College and the University of California campuses.

One other important consideration to moving away from Blackboard 9.1: upgrade downtime. With SaaS, LMS upgrades are more likely seamless to the end user.

Fall 2020

Say good bye to the old Blackboard Learn portal and say hello to Bb Learn Ultra Base Navigation, CSUDH next step in progressing to Blackboard Learn's more modern, intuitive navigation. This does NOT change how your courses look! Ultra Base Navigation only change the portal and provides quick access to the most critical information from across all your courses. This new portal navigation has a sleek, modern look and feel and saves you time with simpler workflows and easier access to important information. 

Winter/Spring 2021

During winter and spring 2021, we will make Bb Ultra available to faculty who wish to be the first adopters.

Summer/Fall 2021

During summer/fall 2021 and fall most instructors who have not yet started using Bb Ultra for their courses will be invited to do so. Old Blackboard sites will still be available for teaching.

Spring/Summer 2022

During spring 2022, Bb Ultra will be used for most course sites. Old Blackboard sites will be available for teaching for the final classes that still need it.

Fall 2021

Bb Ultra is now the main learning management system for the campus. All course now will be available through Bb Ultra platform.

Project Implementation

The Ultra Migration Team (Academic Technology Committee) will provide a supportive and collaborative environment that empowers faculty, students, and staff to succeed in migrating to Bb Ultra, CSUDH’s new learning management system (LMS).
