Collaborate Ultra Web Conferencing

Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is the newest version of the Blackboard Collaborate web conferencing tool. Ultra allows instructors to conduct online meetings with students and colleagues in real-time within D2L. A default "course room" is available to members in a course, but instructors may create a custom session as well. 

IMPORTANT: Collaborate Ultra is completely browser based but requires the latest browser technology. For best results, use only Google Chrome or Firefox 49 (or later) to setup, access or moderate a Collaborate Ultra online room. For more information, check out the Browser details link in the Moderator or Participant callout boxes below. 

Collaborate Ultra is located in the navigation panel under the Communications tab of each course on D2L. 


A word about Collaborate Classic archives:

  • Instructors - create a link in your course content area to use lectures recorded in the “Classic” version of Blackboard Collaborate. Please refer to the Moderator (instructor) block below for directions.
  • Students -  please refer to the Participant block below for help in launching a Collaborate Classic archive (archives will be in the form of a link in your D2L Content area) , or for help with  the new Collaborate Ultra version.
