Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is a tool available in Blackboard that you can use to:

  • pre-record lectures
  • deliver live lectures or webinars (recorded or not)
  • facilitate break-out groups
  • assign students presenter status so that they can deliver presentations
  • facilitate PBL or EBL

The eLearning team have scheduled a series of open Collaborate sessions for staff to try Collaborate before going live with students. You will need a microphone (even your in-built mic will do) and, ideally, a webcam to participate.
We’ll talk you through the process of setting up a Collaborate space, show you the tools it has to offer and then try and answer any questions you may have.
Sessions can be accessed by clicking the links below.  Each session will be open 15 minutes prior to the published start time. Sessions will run at the following times:

Mondays: 2pm – 2.30pm
Wednesdays: 2pm – 2.30pm
Fridays: 2pm – 2.30pm
