Document Summary:

What is Low Bandwidth Management?

In Blackboard Collaborate with the Ultra experience the user's experience is modified to accommodate their connection speed. This means that participants can continue to participate in sessions in spite of slower internet connections and poor network conditions.

Collaborate dynamically adjusts to sending and receiving connection bandwidth for audio and video both in WebRTC with Chrome, and other browsers with Flash.

Am I notified if my connection is poor?

Yes, when the experience changes for a participant, they are notified and told why.

How will my experience change, if I have low bandwidth?

Some situations may require additional adjustment. Collaborate now adds explicit experience changes to accommodate a wider range of connectivity problems, please review our online Low Bandwidth help documentation for complete details on how your experience may change.
