Supporting Students Using Collaborate Ultra

This article provides instructors with best practices for supporting students using Collaborate Ultra.

How can I help my students avoid technical issues with Collaborate Ultra?


Students may need support using Collaborate Ultra. The most common issues that students face as participants are accessing the session and making their audio work properly. With some preparation, you can help them have a better experience.


What about students who need accommodations?
