About Blackboard Collaborate Ultra

Collaborate Ultra is Blackboard’s built-in video conferencing tool. Participants can see others via webcam, hear and ask questions via voice or instant messaging, and share presentations and ideas using a common whiteboard or by sharing screens. Sessions are recorded and can be posted with other course materials in a Blackboard course or shared outside of Blackboard as a direct link. This method allows for more of an in-class feel with discussions and communication occurring just as it would in class.
