Going Beyond Collaborate Basics (Whiteboard, Application Share, Web Tour)
Blackboard Collaborate is XU's Web Conferencing tool! Collaborate offers a live, virtual classroom environment with features that include audio, video, application sharing and content sharing. Collaborate provides the functionality needed to support the 21st century teaching environment. It facilitates a way for faculty and students to interact as if they were meeting face-to-face.
In this interactive workshop, participants will build upon the skills acquired in the Blackboard Collaborate Basics workshop.
Participants will be provided with information and tips to help you work more efficiently and effectively in Collaborate. Collaborate features that will be covered during this workshop include:
- Interactive Whiteboard
- Application Sharing
- Web Tour
- File Transfer Library
Note: This workshop will be held virtually. If you plan to attend this workshop from the comfort of your home or office, please run the first time users system check at least 24 hours in advance of the web conference to make sure your computer is setup and ready to go. A headset with microphone is recommended. Headsets will be provided for those who choose to attend the web conference in CAT computer lab (library, rm 532A). While it is sometimes possible to use iPhone headphones that have built-in microphones on VoIP programs like Skype, these headsets can cause heavy interference in Collaborate sessions. Therefore the iPhone type headphones are not recommended.
