Collaborate Ultra is a synchronous classroom tool, which means an online tool with audio, video, chat, and whiteboard/desktop sharing capabilities to support your course in real-time.  Your instructor may set up Collaborate inside your D2L course, or outside of D2L, in which case your instructor will email session links to you.  If you do NOT see Collaborate on your D2L course navbar or in your course Content area, contact your instructor!
