Description: Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is a real-time audio and video conferencing tool that allows file and application sharing, content delivery through a virtual whiteboard, and interactive discussions. Collaborate Ultra opens in your browser, so there is no additional software to install, and the tool is integrated with Blackboard (VCU's Learning Management System) for easy access within your online courses. Collaborate sessions can be recorded by instructors for playback later, via a web link or within your Blackboard course.
Platform: Windows and Mac
Cost: Available to all VCU faculty and staff.
Blackboard has designed and developed Collaborate Ultra in accordance with the internationally recognized Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA as well as the Section 508 standards in the United States.
