Collaborate is your LMS tool that you will use to participate in webinars—synchronous online discussions with your tutors, peers, subject coordinators and guest experts.
As a part of your online graduate study, you will use the Collaborate tool to join webinars at a scheduled time or access recordings for previous webinars.
To get the most out of your webinars and participate effectively, it is important that you know how to join a session, set up your audio and microphone and use the various tools in your Collaborate window.
Two versions of the Collaborate tool—Collaborate Classic and Collaborate Ultra are used to facilitate webinars. You will use either of these versions to join a webinar. For Collaborate Classic, you will need to download and install the Blackboard Collaborate Launcher prior to joining a session.
The following guides can help you download and install the launcher if required, join a webinar, set up your audio and/or video, and use the tools in your Collaborate window:
