The New Collaborate Key Benefits

With the new Collaborate, Blackboard provides a fully redesigned, high quality, browser based web conferencing solution that makes synchronous learning simple, crystal clear and worry-free. Benefits of the new design include increased simplicity and convenience, enabling faster launching, simpler deployments with reduced end user support and expanded device support including Chromebooks.

Integrating Blackboard Collaborate with your Learning Management System (LMS)

Blackboard Collaborate with the Ultra experience is focused on education and integration with Blackboard Learn and other leading Learning Management Systems for simplicity, accessibility, and supporting academic workflows.

While the “deepest” level of integration for Blackboard Collaborate with the Ultra experience is with Blackboard Learn and Moodlerooms, it also easily integrates with other LTI compliant LMSs. It provides Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to help make the connection to non-supported products, enabling you to leverage the technology you already have in place.


Blackboard: A New Learning Experience

Wherever learning takes place, Blackboard provides the tools that elevate education for all. We believe that learning should be available to access anywhere, at any time, and offer learners the best possible experience. We are passionate about the way technology can enable educators around the world to achieve that.


We have re-engineered and redesigned our portfolio to foster better engagement, interaction, and learning through leading-edge technology, services, and data capabilities.
