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.
