Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Decommissioning
UITS is committed to bringing the Kennesaw State University community the best-in-class tools to provide an optimum teaching and learning experience. As new tools and resources are deployed and improved, we must reassess our product collection. With the increased capabilities of Microsoft Teams as a more robust platform for interactive meetings, UITS will be decommissioning Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. New sessions may be recorded in Blackboard Collaborate Ultra until JULY 30, 2021, but users are strongly encouraged to shift to Microsoft Teams Meetings as soon as possible. Existing videos and chat logs from sessions can be downloaded (until September 30, 2021) and migrated to Kaltura MediaSpace. On October 1, 2021, all content (sessions and chat logs) in Collaborate Ultra will be automatically deleted and the service will be completely decommissioned from the KSU campus.
