We are excited to announce that the Collaborate Session Timer is now available! This highly requested feature reinforces our commitment to delivering the teaching and learning workflows that ultimately contribute to several of our product unifying themes including, academic effectiveness and learner engagement.
This means that you can now set a timer at the beginning of the session to give students a visible indication of how much time is remaining before the Instructor starts, giving everyone time to prepare for the start of class. Instructors will be able to name, pause, and restart the timer that is also available in breakout groups - you might want to break up the class into several breakout rooms, have them work on an activity for a fixed amount of time, and then bring them back into the main room. With the new session timer, you’ll be able to do that.
For more details on this update, please see the Collaborate Ultra release notes.
