Webmeeting Mobile Apps

Apps are the preferred way to view webmeetings on your mobile device. Blackboard Collaborate Ultra uses the Blackboard app, and is available in both Apple and Android stores. Zoom uses the Zoom Mobile app, and is also available on both Apple and Android stores. Though there are some missing features compared to the browser versions, both apps are functional for mobile access to webmeetings. 

Blackboard Collaborate Ultra makes use of the Blackboard app, which can be found on your device’s app store, or from Blackboard's page. This is the same app used to access most other course content.
