Downloading Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Recordings

Wednesday, February 28, 2018

After the end of the Spring 2018 semester, Blackboard Collaborate Ultra will be retired at KU and will no longer be available. Zoom is now available for instructors to use for online meetings and synchronous class sessions. You can learn more about Zoom at Zoom Video Conferencing »

If you would like to keep any of your Collaborate recordings, you should download them before the end of Spring 2018. You can download recordings from Collaborate using the following steps:

  1. Access Blackboard Collaborate within your course.
  2. Open the menu in the upper left-hand corner, and select Recordings.
  3. If you don’t see the recording you want, click Recent Recordings and select Recordings In A Range. Enter a date range.
  4. To the right of the recording you want, click the three dots in a circle icon Recording options icon which looks like a circle with three horizontal dots to access Recording options, and select Download.
  5. Save the recording to a location on your computer.

If you do not see the option to download a recording, this may be due to recording downloads not being enabled on the Collaborate session at the time of the recording. You can enable recording downloads by completing the following: 

  1. Access Blackboard Collaborate within your course. 
  2. If you don't see the Collaborate session that you would like to enable recordings for, next to Filter by click All Upcoming Sessions and select All Previous Sessions.
  3. To the right of the session, click the three dots in a circle icon Recording options icon which looks like a circle with three horizontal dots to access Session options and select Edit settings.
  4. Under Event Details, change the date and time to a date and time in the future. 
  5. Next, expand Session Settings and check the box next to Allow recording downloads.
  6. Click Save.
  7. You should now be able to navigate to Recordings and download your recordings using the previously stated steps. 

If you would like to post any of your downloaded Collaborate recordings in a Blackboard course you can find instructions for posting videos in Blackboard at Add Media.
