Overview of Service

Collaborate Ultra is a synchronous, virtual classroom. Its features include the use of audio, video, chat, polling, interactive whiteboard, and content-sharing tools-all designed to make the online classroom experience as robust as possible. Every session may be recorded for future review/reuse.

Collaborate Ultra will no longer be available in Drexel Learn as of June 13, 2024. Faculty can use the new Zoom Course Meetings tool to integrate that web conferencing platform with their courses.
