What is Blackboard Collaborate?
Any class in HPU's Blackboard system can meet synchronously in a built-in online classroom environment called Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. You can find it under "Course Tools" on the left side menu. The "record" feature also allows you to record your lectures and send a link to the class so they can watch them on their own time.
IT provides support and training for all aspects of Blackboard, but the videos below should help you acclimate quickly.
