Collaborate Ultra: Improved Features

Look who’s talking … 

On Saturday 20th February the web conferencing system, Blackboard Collaborate Ultra will be updated to ensure all Learning Edge users have the latest feature updates and of course to squash those pesky bugs!

Lets dig in to the top 3 improvements:

1) “See who is speaking …”

Microphone icons now appear next to the names of those speaking – outlined below in orange:

2) See when you are “On Air”: If others can see your video there will be a small ‘Eye’ icon at the top of your preview window:

 

 

3) Feedback about participants having connectivity issues – visual and text information such as “Joining …” and “Error, redialing …”
