How do I join a Blackboard Collaborate Ultra session?

Step-by-step guide

Before the Session Starts

The first time you are joining a Collaborate Ultra session plan 10-15 minutes prior to the start of the meeting to assure that all of your technology is working.

What browser should I use?

Blackboard recommends the use of Google Chrome of Firefox for the best experience. Up-to-date browser information can be found on the Blackboard Browser Support page

Enabling  Microphone, Speakers, and Webcam

Headset and Microphone

We recommend a headset and microphone combination for the best audio experience. This may be a USB headset and microphone or the earbuds and microphone that come with many mobile devices. You may opt to use the speakers on your computer along with a seperate microphone. If you choose this option you will want to mute your microphone in Collaborate when you are not speaking. 

Mute and UnMute your Microphone

At the bottom of the Collaborate Ultra screen you will see a series of buttons. The button with the microphone image will control muting or unmuting your microphone. If there is a line through the microphone the sound is muted.
