Blackboard Collaborate and Ultra

Blackboard Ultra

Collaborate Ultra is a synchronous video conferencing tool that is built into Brightspace (D2L). Similar to a web conference, Collaborate Ultra allows you to interact with students using text chat, audio, video, and a white board.

Faculty can use Collaborate Ultra to:

• Host online office hours
• Conduct an online lecture and question-and-answer session
• Bring in a guest lecturer
• Review for a test
• Give feedback on student writing
• Listen to student presentations
• Allow students to work in groups
• Share a computer screen
• Conduct class while you are at a conference
