Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is a web conferencing application. With screen sharing, breakout groups, virtual whiteboard, chats and polling it's a convenient solution for online classes or meetings at a distance.
After selecting your course in Blackboard, go into the "Tools" section and click on the Blackboard Collaborate Ultra icon. This will start a videoconference connection accessible to all students in your class. In the connection, all participants can share video, audio and their computer screen with each other. The software furthermore allows for breakout groups, shared whiteboard annotation and recording.
For recurring classes, Blackboard course managers can create recurring Blackboard Collaborate Ultra meetings that can be accessed by course participants.
