Getting Started with Blackboard Collaborate Instant Messaging

Blackboard Collaborate Instant Messaging (IM) capabilities allow you to create a learning network to support office hours, school services, meetings and desktop video conferencing—all initiated through presence and instant messaging. With Blackboard IM, students and instructors can easily see who’s online and available so they can instantly communicate with peers, colleagues, and experts. You even launch a Blackboard Collaborate web conferencing session with a single click. In this workshop, you will learn the basics of Collaborate IM such as downloading the Instant Messaging application, creating a User ID, and managing contacts.
