If you wish to change the role in which your students are given when they enter your Blackboard Collaborate Ultra session, click the drop down menu under Default Attendee Role and select from the following options based on your needs:

  • Participant: Allows user to enable and disable notifications within the program. Instructor can also determine in the settings if they wish to allow participants to share audio, video, and more.
