Through Blackboard Collaborate Ultra your instructor may schedule real-time webinars in the course. Students at a point may be required to attend an online session. To access the session from the Humber Blackboard course site, you need to follow the instructions to learn how to access it.

Remember that your instructor controls the tools which are available. If you are unable to access it then it mean your instructor has disabled it.
