Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is Blackboards’ video conferencing solution / webinar tool.  Take a look at our resource on What is A webinar?

Collaborate Ultra is web conferencing software specifically aimed at education. It enables lecturers to deliver a lesson online to students in remote locations in much the same was as they would in live classroom. Students can take part in the lesion from a PC, laptop or mobile device. Collaborate Ultra also has the ability to record a session for students to review later.

Collaborate Ultra will work with the most up to date versions of Edge, Safari, and Firefox, but for the best experience use Google Chrome. It no longer works in Internet Explorer or the old version Edge. It is also available for mobile devices. For more info about using Collaborate on a mobile device go to the Collaborate Ultra Mobile help page
