Collaborate Ultra

Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is a webinar system that can be used in a number of ways. Here are some of its primary uses.

  • Teach a class while the professor is traveling
  • Record a live classroom presentation for later review
  • Allow students who cannot make it to class to connect (live) to the classroom presentation
  • Record a personal PowerPoint presentation for later student access
  • Hold a working meeting with people both inside and outside the university
  • Do a live presentation with up to 500 attendees

Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is integrated with Blackboard Learn so that it is easy for the instructor and students to access in official classes. For other uses, support is readily available to help set things up and train presenters.
