Web Conferencing: Bb Collaborate Ultra
Blackboard (Bb) Collaborate Ultra is a real-time web conferencing tool that lets you add files, share applications, and use a virtual whiteboard to interact. Collaborate Ultra opens right in your browser, so you don't have to install any software to join a session. The Bb Collaborate Ultra tool is available in every Bb course and organization. No special set-up is needed. All meeting rooms include a "guest" link that may be sent to participants not enrolled in your Bb course or organization. Bb updates Collaborate regularly, Find out What's New!
