As we get further into the semester, students may find themselves in need of training on certain software programs to be able to complete major course activities and assignments such as creating presentations with Prezi or analyzing data using SPSS. When it comes to facilitating that participation and grading assignments, faculty may want a refresher on those programs or how to use certain feedback features in Canvas.

Starting this Fall, the USF System is making Blackboard Collaborate Ultra available for use in all courses in Canvas.
What is Blackboard Collaborate Ultra? Ultra is a virtual classroom tool that allows you to host synchronous web meetings with your students online. It is similar to Google Hangout, Skype, and our current tool, Blackboard Collaborate. Ultra allows you to use video, audio, chat, polling and screen sharing to interact with your students.
One of the key differences from the original Collaborate is that Ultra is a web-based platform that will not require students to download and launch any programs or meeting files to join the session. This new method can save a lot of time and frustration for both instructors and students. It also boasts a more user friendly interface with intuitive design that makes it easy to interact.
The one feature that is not present in Ultra, but will remain a part of the original Collaborate, is the use of breakout rooms. If you tend to use your synchronous sessions for collaborative work among smaller groups, you may wish to stick with the original version of Collaborate.
To learn more about the Ultra experience, watch this video.
