Saving Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Data

All access, including administrative access, to Blackboard Collaborate Ultra services and data in both Canvas courses and the MyUW System portal will end on June 30, 2021. UWGB faculty and employees must download any needed session recordings, attendance reports, and poll reports from the Collaborate Ultra tool prior to the June 30, 2021 deadline.

Downloading Recordings

As part of UW System's Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Media Management Process, Collaborate Ultra session recordings made in a Canvas course and kept at their default "Public" access setting were automatically copied to the Canvas course instructors' Kaltura My Media libraries for longer term storage and sharing. The Kaltura My Media service is unaffected by this transition, so all recordings present in My Media will remain available after June 30

Recordings of Collaborate Ultra sessions that were scheduled outside of Canvas within a user's MyUW System portal ( were not subject to UW System's media management process and have not been automatically copied into the My Media service. Collaborate Ultra session recordings made in MyUW (outside of Canvas) can be downloaded as individual recordings up until June 30, 2021. There is no bulk process for downloading these recordings.

Downloading Reports

Attendance Reports and Poll Reports from previous Blackboard Collaborate Ultra sessions can be download from Collaborate Ultra to preserve that data beyond the end of service on June 30, 2021. A guide to viewing and exporting session attendance reports and poll reports can be found on the following Blackboard Help guide page:
