Navigating Courses/Organizations in Learn Ultra (How-to)

In Learn Ultra you can search for courses by name or filter the view to hide or show courses right from your Courses list. You can mark courses as favorites for easier access to the courses you use most frequently. All courses are accessible regardless of the view choice. Some courses are set up with different properties and require a change in course view to access previous inactive courses. Courses are listed in alphabetical order; you can no longer re-order your course list.

About Layouts

Filter or search your list: Use the Filter menu to modify your page view. If you navigate to another page, all courses show again. Use the search function to find courses on the current page.

Browse by term: Move to past, current, and upcoming courses. You can choose how many appear on each page. At the bottom of the list, you'll find a page selector to navigate through long lists.

How do terms work?

Drake uses terms to group your courses and control availability in bulk. Each term title matches the semester and year the course was taught (for example: Spring 2021 or Fall 2020).

The term's start and end dates control which courses appear on the Courses page:

  • If the term duration has elapsed, the course appears in Past Courses with the term name as the page title.
  • If the term duration is in the present, the course appears in Current Courses with the term name as a group.
  • If the term start and end dates are both in the future, the course appears in Upcoming Courses with the term name as a group.

About Favorites

View your favorites quickly: If you access a course frequently, you can select the star icon to add it to your Favorites so it appears at the top of the page. You can re-select the star icon to remove a course from your Favorites. You cannot reorder courses in the lists as they are listed in alphabetical order and grouped by term with the newest courses first.

About Current Courses

NOTE: Only active courses (only courses that are available to students) will show on the Current Courses list. All unavailable courses will only show if you look at a specific term. You can adjust which term is showing by selecting Current Courses and choosing an alternate term.

In the left navigation, select Courses to access course view. By default, courses taught during the current semester will appear on under Current Courses. Course content from previous semesters is still available but not accessible from the Current Courses page.

You can return to previous courses to review content, reuse material, and prepare your future courses by navigating to the semester and year the course was taught from the drop down menu.

Adjusting the course view to access Non-Current Courses/Organizations

  1. Courses taught prior to 2018 will be visible under Current Courses until those courses are archived and removed from the system.
  2. Missing courses from your course list are likely marked as unavailable. You can see unavailable courses under the term in which they were taught (for example: Spring 2020 or Fall 2019)
  3. If you are unable to locate a course through the above searches, it may be located under the Assorted Dates section of your current courses view.

If you access a course frequently, you can select the star icon to add it to your Favorites so it appears at the top of the page. You can re-select the star icon to remove a course from your Favorites.
