Q. What do I need to join a Collaborate Ultra Session?

Collaborate Ultra is your online or virtual classroom.


  • A modern computer or laptop.  
  • Access to your Blackboard course so you can get the session link to join the session.
  • Internet Access (Broadband connection highly recommended).
  • Soundcard with microphone and headphones (A USB headset with microphone/headphones is highly recommended).  If you have Bluetooth on your computer or device a set of Bluetooth headphones with a microphone is also possible. For more information on Audio and Video setup click HERE.
  • Webcam so your Learning Facilitator can see you in class.
  • For the best experience, use the latest version of Google Chrome. The latest version of any browser that supports WebRTC should be ok, but Chrome is the recommended web browser.
  • Using a headset is preferred, users without headsets should be sure to be in a quiet area to prevent background noise, and should turn off their microphone when not speaking.
  • Be in a well lit area if transmitting video.
