Blackboard: Collaborate


Blackboard Collaborate is a browser-based web conferencing solution that is great for online classes, webinars, and meetings. Staff and faculty can all use this technology via a non-academic course shell in Blackboard. Attendees can access the meeting via a URL without having to log in to Blackboard. Unlike the previous Blackboard Collaborate Classic version, there is no desktop software download or Java requirement.Join KU IT's Media Production Specialist for this hands-on session where you can experience the Collaborate environment and experiment with the interface.



We highly recommend that you attend any prerequisite workshops listed below since familiarity with the skills and concepts taught in them is essential to benefit fully from subsequent workshops.

However, if you have independently learned the skills and concepts of the required workshop(s), your "equivalent skills" will be accepted as a substitute for attending the prerequisite workshop(s).

To help you determine your skill level, click workshop titles below (if any) for descriptions which outline the topics taught in each workshop and that are assumed in later sessions. You are expected to know the commands and concepts listed within the descriptions for the prerequisite workshop. In most cases, you can also refer to workshop handouts and other helpful materials from the workshop description page.

In addition to any specific prerequisites listed, you should have, as a minimum, basic computing skills.
