Blackboard Collaborate Ultra
We support staff in providing virtual classroom teaching -- using tools like Blackboard Collaborate Ultra and Skype for Business -- to provide a social, collaborative and interactive learning experience. Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is a simple, convenient, and reliable virtual classroom and web-conferencing solution built for education and training.
Using Collaborate Ultra means that the delivery of the module is not as resource intensive; students are encouraged to note any questions they have and raise them during the online Q&A session.
The feedback from students has been very positive. They benefit from hearing each other’s questions, while the instructor benefits from the flexibility of the service.
You can schedule a session with a click of a button and you can avoid all of the logistical arrangements needed for a face-to-face session.
Blackboard Collaborate Ultra uses modern web technologies which means you don't need to install Java or a launcher. While BbCU works in all modern browsers, for best experience use Google Chrome.
