Meet Online in Collaborate

The video says it best – let Collaborate be your one-click virtual classroom! Collaborate is a web conferencing tool that is available in every myCourses site where instructors can meet with their students.

Instructors can use Collaborate for things like:

  • Holding virtual office hours where students can drop-in for help.
  • Inviting your online students to a virtual orientation.
  • Meeting one-on-one with students.
  • Setting up online spaces for student groups to meet and work together.

How do I get started?

It’s easy! If you already have a myCourses site, just add a tool link to “Blackboard Collaborate Ultra” on your course menu. We have embedded a quick tutorial below that will get you up and running with Collaborate in just three minutes.
