Blackboard Collaborate Ultra facilitates an online classroom or meeting environment. These synchronous sessions let you teach or present online. Share items or windows on your desktop, draw on the whiteboard, use presentation software such as PowerPoint, and answer questions. You can also use Collaborate to host a remote guest speaker, conduct online office hours, interview candidates, and hold web meetings! Collaborate features a mobile app for on-the-go accessibility. Collaborate is easy to use!
Collaborate Ultra is built into each course and organization at BW. From the left navigation menu, click on Tools > Blackboard Collaborate Ultra > Click on the Course Room at the top of the page > Join Session button. If you wish to use Collaborate for meetings and sessions outside of a course, request a user account here.
Firefox or Edge are the recommended browsers for use with Collaborate Ultra.
