Blackboard Collaborate is a dynamic media tool that connects you with your students through web conferencing, voice authoring, and mobile collaboration. Â Access the tool from within your course and create sessions to share with students who can connect from a computer or mobile iOS device.
The entire month of February we will focus on the features and functionality of Collaborate. Â Join us for weekly 30 minute Learning Shorts every Friday at 10:00 am.Â Each session will cover a specific feature to help familiarize you with Collaborate.
Sessions are held virtually via the Collaborate tool to provide a hands-on learning experience. Â No need to register. Â Join by accessing the Collaborate link each Friday during the month of February at 10 am. Â Recordings of the sessions will also be made available and linked on the Collaborate Resource Guide.
