Spend more time learning and less time setting up. We've redesigned Blackboard Collaborate to give you a better learning experience-the Ultra experience.

Join sessions quickly.

You don't have to install Java or a launcher. Join the browser-based sessions easily and quickly.

Enjoy a modern aesthetic.

Our sleek and intuitive interface provides a clutter-free experience that puts everything at your fingertips. We call this the Ultra experience.

Focus on learning.

The easy to use interface allows you to focus on learning, not how to use the software!
