In this Tech Tuesday, we cover some basics when first joining Blackboard Collaborate Ultra meetings.

  • Test your audio settings when you first join. Make sure you can both hear and be heard. If applicable, this is also a good time to check your camera. 
  • When you aren't speaking, make sure you are muted. Any background noise, especially if it's unexpected, can disrupt an ongoing meeting. 
  • There are several options to manage how you see other attendees:
    • Group View is useful to monitor everyone in the call, and keep an eye on all participants. 
    • Follow the Speaker View is designed to show off the current focus. It automatically tracks the attendee making the most noise, which should be the person apeaking. This is a great reason to mute yourself, so you don't interrupt Speaker View.
