Sharing A Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Guest Link

This page will show you how to find the guest access link for a Blackboard Collaborate Ultra session.

Blackboard’s contract to provide web conference services to the University of Wisconsin will expire on 6/30/2021. Access to Blackboard Collaborate Ultra web conference sessions, recordings, usage data, and all other services will end on that date. The UW System plans on negotiating a conferencing contract with Zoom before the start of the Fall 2021 semester. Alternative conferencing tools such as Microsoft Teams and WebEx will continue to be available during this transition. More information can be found here.



1. Click on the Collaborate Ultra page in your Canvas course.

2. Click on the session you wish to send the guest link for.



3. On the pop-out menu that appears, select the role for your guests who use that link to join your session. These roles include moderator, presenter, and participant.
Note: If the Guest Role and Guest Link options aren't listed, make sure that the Guest Access box is checked. This option is already turned on by default.



4. The shareable URL link is just to the right of the Guest Role menu. You can click the share icon to the right of the link to automatically copy the link.
