Starting August 8, Collaborate Classic will have a new location within eLearning Commons (eLC) for accessing the web conferencing tool.
Collaborate Classic will still be available elsewhere in eLC and outside of eLC, and users will still have access to their previously archived content.
Users who want to continue using Collaborate Classic within eLC can find instructions for accessing it on the Center for Teaching and Learning’s website.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to transition to Collaborate Ultra, the latest web conferencing Collaborate platform provided by Blackboard.
Collaborate Ultra can be accessed through the eLC toolbar. A overview of Collaborate Ultra is available on the Center for Teaching and Learning’s website.
Ultra runs completely in web browsers, and does not require users to download or install a launcher. It also features a new interface with a more modern look. Additional features include improved audio and video quality, and the option to upload and store content in advance of your session.
For more information about Collaborate Ultra, please contact Robert Ethier in EITS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
