Use Preview to Convert Your Courses
In the Ultra Course preview, you can see exactly how your content will look when it is converted to the Ultra Course View.

Tips and Reminders

  • You can review any features that were in your Original Course that are not supported in the Ultra Course View by clicking the View Details or Review all course exceptions links.
  • After you preview the Ultra Course View, you can either permanently convert the course to Ultra or stay with the Original version. Select the course view you want in the bar at the bottom of your screen. If you choose to return to the Original course, your course will revert to the way it was before the preview, and any changes you made during the Ultra preview are lost.
  • If you choose to use the Ultra course, the conversion will be permanent and you can open the course to students. Your course cannot be converted back to the Original Course View once you confirm that you want to use the Ultra course.
