Collaborate in Moodlerooms

Enjoy a Java-free experience in your classes.

Collaborate with the Ultra experience is available as an Activity Module for Moodlerooms.

Now your users can join a Collaborate with the Ultra experience session from their Moodlerooms class. They don't need to install Java or download and open Java-reliant files to their devices. The session opens in a new window or tab, depending on a their browser settings.
