Blackboard Collaborate Ultra provides a more user-friendly and browser-based web conferencing experience. It does not use Java, so users do not need to download and use a Java application when joining the session. Chrome browser works best with Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. However, you can also use other supported browsers and find which OS, browser and software combinations work best for screen readers from the accessibility page.
Blackboard Collaborate Ultra has a modern, intuitive user interface. One can easily figure out how everything works directly from the screens. If you need more information, below are some tutorials for instructors/moderators to get started:
