The new experience for courses on Aston’s Virtual Learning Environment.
Learn Ultra features simplified navigation, a mobile-friendly experience, intuitive workflows, and data-driven learning analytics, making it easier for you to keep students engaged and on the path to success.
Aston is already on the path to Ultra, having begun in September 2020 by moving to the Ultra Base Navigation. The most recent step was for the 2022 academic year, where the Foundation Year adopted the Ultra Course View for their modules.
The next step will be for the 2023 academic year; Final details are being discussed at college Learning and Teaching Committees, with an announcement expected before April.
We’ll reach out to instructors with details on the training and support available to help get the most out of Learn Ultra’s tools and features, and how they work with our integrations like Panopto/Aston Replay and Turnitin.
