Important Information Regarding Blackboard Collaborate Ultra

We appreciate your attention to this important message.

The CaTS-ITS department worked with the Faculty Senate IT Subcommittee during the March meeting and shared the need for one video conferencing tool to be adopted as the primary tool used for all students and faculty. The use of one tool is not only student-centered, it is more efficient to support and provide training.

Webex was selected as the primary video conferencing tool for use at Wright State University.

What does this mean for Blackboard Collaborate Ultra users?
Due to the adoption of Webex, Blackboard Collaborate Ultra will end on August 5, 2022.

Users do not need to take any action to migrate Blackboard content. All Blackboard content will be backed up to on-campus local storage by ITS prior to ending the Blackboard Service. More information will be shared about when the backup will occur and how to access this video content in the coming weeks.
