Temporary Removal of some Collaborate Ultra Features

First posted: Thursday, 19 March 2020, 10:15am

Blackboard have disabled some lower priority Collaborate Ultra features to help cope with global demand. These features are:

  • Timer (a countdown timer that helps with classroom time management)
  • Chat typing indicator (a visual indicator that someone is typing but have not yet completed their thought. The chat feature itself will still be available.) 
  • Netstats indicator (a visual indicator of connection quality next to each user) 
  • Reducing the number of video thumbnails from 4 to 2 (this is the maximum number of thumbnails visible in the grid view)

We will update this page when the features are restored in the coming weeks.
