    If advisement is being done remotely, chances are strong it will be done via the Blackboard Collaborate Ultra application. If that’s the case, it’s advisable to use the
    CHROME browser to allow for easy access to Degree works.

    The reason that many are opting for Collaborate rather than other video conferencing is that the platform is secure with sensitive data and specific to the person who’s registered to use that particular advisement site.
