In the Ultra Course View, most of the settings and tools from the Control Panel have been distributed throughout the interface to make building and customizing your course easier and more natural. For example, utilities like Course Copy are integrated within the content creation workflow (copy content directly into the content list using the plus sign (+), and grading is available both on the Gradebook tab in the upper right as well as within any assessment item (e.g., click the right arrow at the top of an Assignment to view submissions and grade inline).
The Control Panel provides access to the various features and tools available within Blackboard relating to course customization, administration, and maintenance. The Control Panel is viewable only by faculty and staff who have been assigned the Blackboard Role of Instructor, Course Builder, Teaching Assistant, or Grader.
All menu areas are accessible by Action Links indicated by the arrows.
