Welcome to Blackboard Collaborate Ultra!

Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is a video conferencing tool that you and your students may access through your Blackboard course site. It will allow for you to annotate content, chat with participants, utilize audio and video, etc. in real-time. It also allows for the recording of sessions to share later.

Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is ideal for distance courses that want to accomplish any of the following:

  • Virtual Office Hours
  • Live Class Sessions
  • Small Group Sessions
  • One-on-One Meetings
  • And more!

To get started, see our Faculty or Student sections to find tutorials on usage of this tool.
