Collaborate Ultra is a Blackboard tool that lets you meet with students online in a synchronous virtual classroom. You can host a video discussion with students during a snow storm, deliver your lecture from the conference hotel room, or host a remote guest speaker in the classroom. Collaborate can also be used by students to coordinate group work online. This session will introduce how you can use Collaborate and review the basic functionality.

A rubric is a scoring tool that you can use to evaluate student work. A rubric makes your expectations transparent to your students and guides them to meet the requirements. When you grade using a rubric built in Blackboard, you can click on the appropriate achievement level for each grading criteria being assessed and Blackboard automatically tabulates the points earned, which makes the grading process more efficient. In this workshop, you will learn why rubrics are helpful for learners, how to create a rubric in Blackboard, and how to use it to grade student work.
