We support staff in providing virtual classroom teaching using Collaborate Ultra to provide a social, collaborative and interactive learning experience. Collaborate Ultra can be used in either Blackboard or Brightspace, and is a simple, convenient, and reliable virtual classroom and web-conferencing solution.
"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."
Collaborate Ultra uses modern web technologies which means you don't need to install Java or a launcher. While it works in all modern browsers it works best with Google Chrome.
