Accessing a Collaborate Ultra Recording

This document explains how to access a Blackboard Collaborate Ultra recording from within Canvas.

To access a recording created in Blackboard Collaborate Ultra you will first need to go to the Collaborate Ultra tab along the left navigation bar:

From there, you will need to open the Menu tab (it looks like three horizontal lines):

Click on the Recordings tab under the Menu options. You will see a list of session recordings within the class:

Next, select the video you would like to copy a URL from and select Watch Now:

Recording - Watch Now

You will need to grab the URL as the video is still loading. You will see that it has a longer, unique URL string attached to the video:

Recording Loading - Collaborate Ultra


If you wait until the video has loaded completely, you will get a generic session playback URL. This is the URL you do not want, as it is not specific to your recording:

Loaded Recording URL


Once you have a copied the long URL you are able to share the recording using that custom URL string.
