Qwickly Announces New Ultra Extension Framework (UEF) Integrations for Qwickly Attendance Classic and Qwickly Course Tools in Blackboard Learn Ultra.

BbWorld 2020 took place on July 21st and 22nd. This year’s virtual event featured  presentations from keynote speakers, break-out sessions, and more, focusing on new models of teaching and learning, accessibility and inclusivity, student engagement, and the impact of COVID-19 on education. 

During the session, “Improving User Experiences through Next Generation Integrations in Learn Ultra,” Darek Sadey, Blackboard Director of Product Management T&L Solutions, discussed next generation LTI/REST integration options for partners in Blackboard Ultra, called the Ultra Extension Framework (UEF).  

What can you do with the UEF? The UEF offers several new capabilities to integrations in the Blackboard Learn Ultra Experience:

  • Telemetry: Receiving detailed user navigation behavior data, including click, route, and hoover events. See a demo.
  • User Interface Elements: Ability to populate UI elements and content, including capabilities for banners, modals, and notifications.
  • Help Provider Registration: Option to override the default behavior of the native help tool in Ultra.

 

The presentation featured real examples of integrations designed to deliver an enhanced user experience for admins, instructors, and students alike. Qwickly President, Matt Hadgis, demonstrated Qwickly’s latest integrations, built in partnership with the Blackboard development team, into the Blackboard Learn Ultra Experience using the new Ultra Extension Framework.
