A welcome slide for Collaborate Ultra

Collaborate UltraThe University of Newcastle uses Blackboard Learn as a learning management system. One of the features I rely on is Collaborate Ultra which provides a chat room (including video, audio and sharing screens).

I thought I’d provide a slide I use when students enter the room. Below is an image of the slide and if you click here you can download it as a PowerPoint slide.

The slide gives a quick overview of some of the Collaborate Ultra features so students can orientate themselves quickly. Feel free to use it, but you might need to change the information about the phone number as you might not have a Sydney phone number (particularly if you aren’t in NSW, Australia!)

The following video gives a quick overview of Collaborate Ultra if you don’t know about it. It’s a great tool.
