Blackboard Collaborate Ultra, Students, Telephony and Mobile App
Students can utilize the Blackboard Mobile App to join a live Blackboard Collaborate Ultra session. Students are advised to consult their instructor if considering the use of a mobile device as the primary means of participating in Blackboard Collaborate Ultra sessions.
This article addresses using your phone to join Blackboard Collaborate Ultra sessions either by telephony or the Blackboard Mobile App.
If you are experiencing technical difficulties joining a session via a traditional web browser, then using the Mobile App or Telephony option to join a session may be an adequate workaround.
