The Blackboard Ultra Lunch & Learn Roadmap is an interactive event designed to provide faculty with an abbreviated overview of Ultra’s future development and to gather their feedback about how Ultra is used to support their teaching and learning. Sponsored by Instructional Technology and Anthology, the parent company of Blackboard, the roadmap will be available to attendees in both virtual and in-person formats. 

Session Objectives:

  • Facilitate a collaborative dialogue between faculty and Anthology representatives 
Please take a few minutes to complete this pre-event survey by February 14, 2024 to help us tailor the upcoming Lunch & Learn Roadmap session to your needs and interests. Your responses will guide the focus of the roadmap presentation and discussion.

This session will be hyflex, allowing participants to choose whether they attend in-person or virtually. Lunch will be provided for in-person attendance. Space is limited for in-person and unlimited for virtual: Please indicate how you will attend so we can plan accordingly. All registered participants will receive a calendar invitation from the event host at least one week before the event.


The virtual component of this roadmap will use Webex. Select the "Join Online Event" button in myUMBC to access the Webex session up to 10 minutes before the event.

  1. Check your audio and video settings. Participants will be muted during the session with access to chat and Q&A.
  2. Access the event link via myUMBC.
