Synchronous Video for Classes & Meetings
Collaborate Ultra is Blackboard's live video conferencing tool. It is built into Blackboard and each course has its own Collaborate "classroom." Collaborate facilitates a synchronous virtual classroom experience that lets students and faculty interact remotely, breakout into groups, share applications & files, and use the virtual whiteboard.
BW is a Microsoft Office 365 campus, which includes access to Microsoft Teams collaboration software. Teams lets you conduct virtual meetings, share documents, chat, and it integrates with your Outlook calendar.
BW has a one-year contract with Zoom to help faculty and student with remote instruction. For Zoom support, please contact the IT HelpDesk.
