Blackboard Collaborate Ultra, Students, Telephony and Mobile App

Students can utilize the Blackboard Mobile App to join a live Blackboard Collaborate Ultra session.


Note: The Blackboard Collaborate service will retire on June 30, 2020. This article will be unpublished at that time.
The Zoom service is replacing Blackboard Collaborate. It is available starting in Spring 2020.

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.

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.

Collaborate Ultra features and functions from within the mobile app are detailed here: https://help.blackboard.com/Blackboard_App/Collaborate
