The latest version of Collaborate Ultra will be released on 13 January 2022.
The return of the whiteboard pointer
The first release of the new Whiteboard didn’t include a pointer, instead suggesting a workaround of annotating the slide with an arrow and moving that around. Blackboard have listened to feedback and have added a pointer!
Anybody who has whiteboard permissions can use pointers simultaneously, E.g. you can give your students presenter rights to let them swarm their pointers on areas of the slides.
Note Pointer activity is not captured in session recordings.
This will begin at 0000 and end at 0400 GMT (See details for other time zones). You can subscribe to updates on Blackboard’s status site.
