Canvas - Blackboard Ultra in Canvas (UW-Madison)

How to find and access Blackboard Ultra Webconferencing in Canvas.

Blackboard Ultra integrates with the new Canvas Learning Management System.  You can create web conferences that are accessible to anyone enrolled in your course using this integration.  Any recordings you make using Blackboard Ultra will also be available to those enrolled in the class. Finally, Ultra integrates with your course roster, so students who join Ultra from your course will be automatically signed in as themselves. (Those who sign in via a guest link instead of through Canvas will be prompted to enter a name)

To access the Ultra admin interface, simply click on Ultra Conference in the course navigation bar.  To create a new session, click on the plus sign in the upper right hand corner.  To join a session, simply click on its name (red arrow).  To access any recordings, click on the menu button in the top left corner (underlined in red), this will reveal a menu that allows you to toggle between sessions and recordings
