Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is the newest version of Blackboard’s free web conferencing module. Unlike previous versions, Ultra runs directly in your browser with no additional software installations required. A browser plug-in is required for screen sharing using Chrome.

Collaborate Ultra lets faculty, staff and students meet in an online space with video, audio, chat, whiteboards and screen sharing. It can be used for online course meetings, faculty hours, presentations, study sessions, special classes or make-up days.

The legacy version of Blackboard Collaborate is still available to all users. This version requires Java installation. For information and user guides on this version of Collaborate, please visit our Blackboard Collaborate information web page. Some features of Blackboard Collaborate are not yet available in Ultra, including “Shared Sessions” (which grants shared access between courses) or conferences with more than 250 participants.
