Blackboard plans to deploy the June release from 1:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 30, 2019. Access to the Blackboard Collaborate Ultra service may be intermittently available during this time frame. Please select this news item for more information about the new features.

The following features and updates are expected as an outcome of the release:
  • Moderators can now share content to one or more breakout groups. 
  • If attendees in a session are not active after a time, the session ends. This includes activity such as using audio, raising a hand, sharing content, and so on. Inactive attendees in the session see and hear a reminder that the session is open and will close in a minute.
