eClassroom Guide to Collaborate Ultra

Some of GHC’s eClassroom classes are running on a new version of Blackboard Collaborate called “Blackboard Collaborate with the Ultra Experience” or “Collaborate Ultra” for short.  Eventually all eClassroom classes will use this version.

Best Browser for Collaborate Ultra

Collaborate Ultra works best with the Chrome browser.  It will work in other browsers (like Firefox or Internet Explorer) but some features may be missing.  Use Chrome if you can.

Collaborate Ultra is also available via mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.  A section about that appears at the end of this web page.
