Illinois Compass 2g offers a new version of Blackboard Collaborate that allows participants to participate in web conferences and real-time collaboration.
Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is the newest version of Blackboard Collaborate. Compass 2g course owners can use Blackboard Collaborate Ultra by going to Course Tools > Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. See Illinois Compass 2g, Instructors, Create a Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Session for more info on creating a link for students to access.
Blackboard Collaborate Ultra does not have all the features of Blackboard Collaborate "Classic." For its ease of use, Blackboard Collaborate Ultra may be the best choice for basic online collaboration such as group work, class lectures, or online office hours.
