Blackboard Ultra FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need to purchase software to access your online courses?

    There are no charges to access the online content. You can use your UTI email to access the online courses in Blackboard Ultra. All you need is a computer or mobile device with online access.

  • Will online instruction be available 24/7?

    Yes. You'll be able to access the instructor-led online component of your training in Blackboard Ultra 24/7.

  • Are you going to take attendance for online classes?

    Students are graded on academic progress, which is the foundation for attendance/participation in the online component of the course. Lab attendance/participation is based on quiz and lab assignment completion. Students will earn online attendance credit by completing at least one full assignment in Blackboard Ultra.

  • How many hours per day should students dedicate to their online course component?

    The time spent each day is variable based on enrolled program and complexity of the courses. The student’s learning style, industry experience, previous learning, skill and ability, study habits, and motivation contribute to the time dedicated to complete the online component. We also encourage students to review additional material and resources that are available online to supplement their learning. UTI believes the range of daily work would be up to three (3) hours, with an average of approximately two (2) hours each day.

  • How do I take online classes if I don’t have access to the internet?

    You can work with the Education and Student Services teams at your campus to get access to the Learning Resource Center for access to the internet. Access will be dependent on guidance from health officials to ensure the health and safety of students and staff. Also, there are many businesses that offer free WiFi.
