Q. How do I share my screen in Collaborate Ultra?


NOTE: To share your screen with Collaborate you will need to use the Chrome browser.

Staff with the role of moderator or presenter can always share their screen. Students will need to be given the role of presenter to be able to share their screen. Follow the steps below to share your entire screen.


  • Go to the third icon in the Collaborate panel (bottom left of the screen):


  • Select “Share Application / Screen”: 


  • Select “Entire Screen”.

NOTE: If this is the first time you are screen sharing with Collaborate you will be prompted to install the Desktop Sharing extension for Chrome. Once the extension is installed click back to the Collaborate browser tab. 

  • If you have multiple screens, select the thumbnail of the screen you wish to share and click the Share button:

  • Your screen will now be displayed and may be repeated as shown below. Either navigate to another browser tab or launch a program in front of the browser and continue running Collaborate in the background. Whatever you view on your screen will be displayed to all participants in the Collaborate session.
