Demonstration of new synchronous web conferencing software

On 13th April, we have a demonstration of Ultra Collaborate, used by the Open University, for learners, academics, administrators, and support staff. This system can be linked to the Hub, providing opportunities for online seminars, tutorials, PAT sessions, supervision. Students click on a link from the Hub and are taken to an online space, supporting video, audio, interactive whiteboard and Q&A.

Ultra can also be used as a stand-alone system for online events, webinars, communications between collaborative partners, virtual demonstrations of our systems, support and guidance.
