Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Support



Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is the 2017 successor to Blackboard Collaborate.  It is a powerful web conferencing tool that enables instructors and students alike to have “in class” experiences from anywhere with a computer and internet connection.  With Blackboard Collaborate Ultra, you can share live video from your web camera, power point presentations, use a white board, and even record your online session for future reference.

You can access Collaborate Ultra from any course on Blackboard, and it does not require a license or accessory in order to function – if you teach a course or are an enrolled student, you are ready to use Blackboard Collaborate Ultra!

Please note: Continuing and Professional Studies (CAPS) instructors / students do not have access to Blackboard.

Instructional Links:


For the best experience with Blackboard Collaborate Ultra, we recommend using the Mozilla Firefox web browser, which can be downloaded by going to: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox.
