To Learn More

Updated Look We've done some rearranging in our menus and added new features. All to improve your learning experience.
Recorded Sessions Moderators can now record sessions and share with participants.
Snap a Photo Take a photo of yourself to use as your profile picture. Crop it just where you want it and save. Looking good!
Control Your Volume Set your personal speaker and microphone volume from within the browser.
Get a Closer Look Adjust your view of shared files and the whiteboard. Zoom in to make it easier to see.
Course Integration Collaborate is now available from most courses.
Live Closed Captioning Live closed captioning was made available in the Ultra experience. This provides accessible alternatives to audio content and can improve the learning experience for students who are deaf and hard of hearing, as well as for students whose native language is different from the moderator’s.
