CollaborateのUltraユーザエクスペリエンスとは何ですか?

当社では、ユーザによりよい学習体験を提供するために、Blackboard Collaborateの設計を見直しました。これがUltraユーザエクスペリエンスです。授業に割く時間を増やし、設定に割く時間を減らすことができます。

セッションにすばやく参加 セッションにアクセスするために、Javaやランチャーをインストールする必要はありません。ブラウザベースのセッションに、すばやく簡単に参加できるようになりました。

モダンな美しさを味わう スマートで直感的なインターフェイスはすっきりしていて、あらゆる操作が簡単に行えます。当社ではこれをUltraユーザエクスペリエンスと呼んでいます。

学習に集中 インターフェイスが使いやすいので、ソフトウェアの使用方法ではなく、学習に集中することができます。

Blackboard Learn 9.1でのCollaborate

Collab/Learn Integration Get Started

Get started: Choose a building block

Your users can join a Collaborate with the Ultra experience session from their Blackboard Learn course. They don't need to install Java or download and open Java-reliant files to their devices. The session opens in a new window or tab, depending on their browser settings.

You have two choices to get started with Collaborate with the Ultra experience in Blackboard Learn 9.1. There are two building blocks with similar but distinct functions:

  • Blackboard Collaborate: With this building block, instructors have one open session dedicated to their course, known as the course room. The course room lasts the life of the course. They can turn student access to the room off, but they can't create new sessions.

    With the Blackboard Collaborate Building Block, you can use Collaborate with the Original experience or Collaborate with the Ultra experience for the course room. You control which courses use each experience.

    The Blackboard Collaborate Building Block is available for Blackboard Learn SP 12 and higher, but older versions only support Collaborate with the Original experience. To get the building block that contains Collaborate with the Ultra experience, you'll need Blackboard Learn 9.1 October 2014 and higher.

    More information on the Blackboard Collaborate Building Block is available on Behind the Blackboard (available in English only)

  • Blackboard Collaborate Ultra: With the Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Building Block, instructors have both a dedicated course room and the ability to schedule as many new sessions as they want. The room lasts the life of the course and can be turned off.

    The Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Building Block uses Learning Tools Interoperability® (LTI) compliant credentials.

    More on requesting credentials

    This building block is bundled with Blackboard Learn 9.1 October 2014 and later, and the upgrade path from one version to the next is very simple.


What's the difference?

Here are some essential details to keep in mind:

  • The Blackboard Collaborate Building Block offers you the choice to use Collaborate with the Original experience OR Collaborate with the Ultra experience.
  • The Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Building Block only lets you use Collaborate with the Ultra experience. The Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Building Block uses Learning Tools Interoperability® (LTI) compliant credentials, but this is different from using an LTI integration. This building block allows you to configure the availability of Collaborate with the Ultra experience directly within the Administrator Panel.
  • A Blackboard Collaborate integration is also available through an LTI integration, without having to install a building block. The LTI integration requires you to link Blackboard Learn to the Collaborate Session Administration System, an external portal where you schedule and manage sessions.

Which Building Block is right for my institution?

Not sure which Building Block is best for you? It comes down to the technology you want to use. You can use the new Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Building Block at the same time as the Blackboard Collaborate Building Block, if you want the features to overlap.

This table compares the Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Building Block and the Blackboard Collaborate Building Block (with Collaborate with the Ultra experience enabled).

Configure Learn/Collab building blocks

Configure the Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Building Block

The Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Building Block uses Learning Tools Interoperability® (LTI) compliant credentials. You need to request new credentials after you install this building block. If you previously used the LTI integration to add Collaborate to your Blackboard Learn instance, you can reuse those credentials.

  1. Go to Administrator Tools, Building Blocks, and Installed Tools.
  2. Find Blackboard Collaborate Ultra and select Settings.
  3. Select Web Conference Settings.
  4. Fill in the Collaborate Services Configuration information with the information Blackboard gave you.
  5. Select Submit.
  6. After you configure the building block, turn it on.

Configure the Blackboard Collaborate Building Block

  1. From Administrator Tools, select Building Blocks, and Installed Tools.
  2. Find Blackboard Collaborate, and select Settings.

    If this is the first time you're using this building block, you'll have to enter the credentials Blackboard provided to you.

  3. Select Set Availability for Courses and choose Use the Ultra experience.
  4. After you configure the building block, turn it on.

When you choose Use the Ultra experience, Collaborate with the Ultra experience is available immediately to all Blackboard Learn courses, organizations, and associated users, and Collaborate with the Original experience is no longer an option.

Any existing Collaborate sessions using the Original experience in a Blackboard Learn course won't be converted to the Ultra experience. Original experience recordings continue to be available in Blackboard Learn courses even if Collaborate with the Ultra experience is enabled for the course. However, each course room only uses the Ultra experience after you choose this option.

If you'd like to choose the Collaborate experience for specific courses, you can select Custom. Search for the courses, and choose the Collaborate experience you'd like those courses to use.


Turn on Collaborate

After you have configured Collaborate, turn it on.

  1. From the Administrator Panel select Tools.
  2. Find Blackboard Collaborate or Blackboard Collaborate Ultra.
  3. Turn on the course and organization tools as needed.

After the room is turned on for their course, an instructor or someone with a higher role makes the room available to other course users when they first access it. The room stays open for the life of the course.

CollaborateおよびLearnの出欠レポート (管理者向け)


出欠レポート

出欠レポートは終了の日付と時刻のあるセッションでのみ利用可能です。コースルーム内では出欠は追跡されません。

Collaborateが教員に代わって出欠を取ります。Blackboard Learnの教員は、出欠を手動で追跡せずにCollaborateセッションをホストすることができます。

管理者と教員が設定する項目に基づいて、学生がセッションに出席しているか、遅刻したか、欠席したかをCollaborateが追跡します。Collaborateは、その情報を該当するBlackboard Learnコースの[出欠]ページに直接送信します。

Collaborateセッションの出欠情報は、コースの各学生の平均出欠にカウントされます。また、学生の成績計算にも使用できます。

Blackboard Learnでの出欠の詳細

出欠レポートの設定

出欠レポートを使用する前に、システムでBlackboard Collaborate Ultra Building Blockを有効にして設定する必要があります。Learnの各インスタンスに、一意のCollaborate利用者アカウントも必要です。Collaborate利用者アカウントをステージング環境と本番環境の間で共有する場合は、追加のCollaborate利用者アカウントをリクエストする必要があります。

出欠レポートを使用するには、クラウドサイトIDを登録し、出欠レポート機能を有効にする必要があります。

  1. [管理者ツール]から、[Building Blocks]、[インストールされているツール]の順に選択します。

  3. [クラウドサイトIDの登録]を選択します。
  4. [登録]、[送信]の順に選択します。
  5. [出欠設定]を選択します。
  6. [出欠のレポート]チェックボックスを選択します。

  7. 必要に応じて、出欠しきい値を編集します。この出欠しきい値はロックされていないため、教員は、セッション内で値を変更できます。
