Collaborate is the newest web-conferencing tool available for use in your Blackboard course. Â Use Collaborate for both synchronous and asynchronous activities such as live class sessions, guest speakers, virtual office hours, group work, or recorded lectures.
Moderators can present slides on an interactive whiteboard, take students on a web tour, or share their desktop to demonstrate an application. All participants can interact via the audio, video and chat functions.
More advanced tools include polling and quiz features to check understanding and engage participants.
With Collaborate Mobile, students can join a live session from their iPhone or iPad. Â This sleek mobile application is easy to use and makes participation a snap. Â Visit the Apple Store to download the mobile app for free.
Get started by creating a Collaborate session in your course. Â View the Quick Start Guide or Video Tutorial for complete instructions. Â If Collaborate has not yet been enabled in your course, follow these steps to make it available.
