Have you ever considered hosting online office hours or meeting virtually with students? Blackboard Collaborate can make it happen! Instructors and students can communicate with each other via text chat, audio/video, or by calling in using a telephone. Collaborate also lets you to share your computer screen and present documents to students. Sign-up for the Online Meetings in Blackboard Collaborate workshop on Thursday, April 19th to learn more.

Instructors can use iClicker Cloud to ask questions during class that students answer from their laptop, smartphone, or tablet. After students answer a question, the instructor can spark discussion by analyzing the results with the class. The iClicker Cloud software keeps track of every question and class session in a grade book so it is easy to go back and track your student’s participation throughout the semester.
