This month's edition of the Pulse podcast features a look at a university's conversion from one version of Blackboard's learning management system to another.

In this conversation with his University of the Sciences colleague Rob McCunney, a technology administrator there, Rodney B. Murray, host of The Pulse, tells the story of the institution's switch from Blackboard Learn to Blackboard Ultra.

Among other things, they discuss the move from managed hosting to software as a service, what went well (and didn't) in the conversion, and the advantages and limitations of the new learning management system.

The Pulse is Inside Higher Ed’s monthly technology podcast. Murray is executive director of the office of academic technology at University of the Sciences.
