Creating Links | Adding a Link for Blackboard Collaborate Ultra (Moderators)

Links to Blackboard Collaborate Ultra (BbCU) are not present by default in areas that students can access in the Blackboard course shell.  If you plan on using this tool, you will need to provide a link to the student either in the Content area or on the Main Menu.  Typically, we don't encourage altering the Main Menu, but if you plan on using BbCU on a regular basis, having it in a very visible area, like the main menu, may be helpful to students.  If you only plan on using BbCU on occasion, it is better to put it in the module folder that corresponds with the time that you'll be using the tool.
