Learn and Blackboard Collaborate

Blackboard Collaborate is integrated within Learn, our centrally supported VLE.

Learn is the University of Edinburgh's centrally-supported virtual learning environment (VLE).

Blackboard Collaborate is seamlessly integrated with Learn. If you are a user of Learn then you can use the Blackboard Collaborate service.

Please follow the instructions on how to add a Collaborate session to your Blackboard Learn Course.

Please note: The Blackboard Collaborate service is not related to the "Collaboration" course tool within Learn.

Collaborate Ultra Group Tool 

Instructors can add Collaborate Ultra sessions to Groups pages in Learn. If instructors allow, students can share content and use the whiteboard, as well as create recordings.
