Blackboard Collaborate Classic/Original has an auto-record setting for sessions and we have used this for years. We are reluctant to roll out Ultra because it does not have an auto-record setting, we fear professors and teachers will forgot to record sessions, especially those who have used Classic for years. Forgetting to record a session is a critical problem for students and faculty.
Please consider adding the auto-recording feature Classic has to Ultra. Its the only thing preventing our university from adopting it.
As a compromise, consider adding a pop-up notification when a Teacher joins a session if the session is not being recorded, the message could read 'This session is not being recorded, would you like to record it' and two buttons of yes/no. I think this is a better solution then the setting above as it also prevents unnecessary recordings being created by students and is almost foolproof. Hopefully less backend work, essentially putting the Record button in a pop up notification if no recording occurring. Recorded sessions are just too important to miss.
