Blackboard Collaborate

Welcome to the overview of BB-Collaborate, the web conferencing tool that is used by the entire UW System.   During the Spring 2017 semester, there will be links to both the BB-C Ultra and Online Rooms (BB-C Classic) in the course navigation bar because not all of the features from the Classic version are available yet in the Ultra version.  When Blackboard stops supporting the BB-C Classic version, we will remove the Online Rooms link from the navigation bar.

BB-Collaborate Classic

This version of BB-Collaborate, a program based web conferencing tool, has been integrated with Learn@UWSuperior using Online Rooms and the My UW System Portal using the Employee Resources tab for several years now. 

To help you get started, we've created some basic BB-Collaborate Classic Tutorial Videos and Quick Guides.  We also have a Welcome Slide with Audio Wizard Instructions that you can download and use as the first slide in your presentation.

BB-Collaborate Ultra

This version of BB-Collaborate, a completely browser-based web conferencing tool, was added as a link in Learn@UWSuperior on course navigation bars just before the Spring 2017 semester. 

We have created some basic BB-Collaborate Ultra Tutorial Videos and BB-Collaborate Ultra Quick Guides.  We also have a Welcome Slide with instructions on how to check the audio that you can download and use as the first slide in your presentation.

Note: At this time, it is recommended that you use Google Chrome as your browser when working with BB-Collaborate Ultra.  The App Sharing feature needs an "add-on" in order to work properly that is only available using Google Chrome.
