Faculty - Sharing Files to Breakout Groups in Blackboard Collaborate Ultra

The Breakout Groups feature in Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is a great way to break your students into Groups that are outside of the main Collaborate space. 

It is possible that you want your Breakout Groups to reference certain files to work through a problem. Blackboard Collaborate Ultra now gives you the ability to share files with Breakout Groups. You can share the same file to all groups or you can share different files for each group. 

This article will show you how to share files with Breakout Groups in Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. 

 

1. Select the purple tab in the lower right corner of your Blackboard Collaborate Ultra session to open the Collaborate Panel.

 

 

 

2. Select the Share Content tab at the bottom of the Collaborate Panel.

 

 

 

3. Select Breakout Groups to put your students into their respective groups. Select Start when you are finished. This will move students out of the Main Collaborate Room into their respective group spaces.

For specific directions on how to create Breakout Groups in Blackboard Collaborate Ultra, please view the following article from Blackboard:

4. Select the Share Content button again from the Collaborate Panel.

 

 

5. Select Share Files.

Select a file you have already uploaded into this space or select + File to upload a file. 

 

6. Select the three dots (...) to the right of the file name.

Then select Share with Groups.

 

 

7. On the next window, select the Group or Groups that you want to share the file with in their group space.

The file you shared will automatically appear for students in their Breakout Group.
