Blackboard Collaborate

TLTC Summer Series – Step it Up with Technology | Real Time Communication with Blackboard Collaborate
June 11, 2014


This session will introduce participants to Blackboard Collaborate, a real-time online communication tool. Faculty can now offer synchronous online lectures, office hours, guest speakers, and break out rooms to support student collaboration. Collaborate is integrated within Blackboard courses, allowing seamless access to real-time online communication. The morning will be dedicated to a demonstration and use-case discussion. A 1 hour, post lunch session will provide a hands-on opportunity to use Bb Voice Tools, which allow instructors and students the ability to add recorded voice comments within the course. Anyone interested in adding this dimension of online communication to their courses is encouraged to attend.
