What is the Blackboard Collaborate (Ultra)?
Blackboard Collaborate is a real-time video conferencing tool that lets you add files, share applications, and use a virtual whiteboard to interact. Collaborate with the Ultra experience opens right in your browser, so you don’t have to install any software to join a session. You can utilize Blackboard Collaborate (Ultra) sessions within Blackboard Learn and also host meetings outside of Blackboard Learn (including participants that are non-MSU Denver users).
Why use Blackboard Collaborate (Ultra) versus Blackboard Collaborate (Original)?
Blackboard Inc has redesigned Blackboard Collaborate to give your users a better learning experience-the Ultra experience.
Join sessions quickly – You no longer need to install Java or a launcher to access sessions. Now you can quickly join browser-based sessions with ease!
Enjoy a modern aesthetic – Our sleek and intuitive interface provides a clutter-free experience that puts everything at your fingertips. We call this the Ultra experience.
Focus on learning – The easy to use interface allows you to focus on learning, not how to use the software!
