​​​​​​​​​​Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Web Conferencing

If you use Blackboard in your teaching, we have good news to share.  Thanks to a collaborative effort between the College of Continuing Studies and Information Technology, BSU has adopted Blackboard’s Collaborate Ultra web-conferencing system!  


 Blackboard Collaborate User Interface Tour


You can use Collaborate Ultra right from within your Blackboard course sites to video-conference with your students individually or with the entire class, hold virtual student consultations if you are teaching online, and more.  Collaborate Ultra has instant polling, screen-sharing, and breakout group capabilities.  

There are multiple ways you can access Collaborate in your Blackboard course sites:
  • Proceed to a content section (i.e. Course Content) > Build Content > Collaborate Ultra
  • In the left-hand menu of your course site click the plus + sign > Tool link.  Name the link "Collaborate Ultra", select Collaborate Ultra from the drop-down menu, and click Submit
  • Proceed to the Tools section and click Collaborate Ultra
