Your Blackboard Course

Blackboard Collaborate

Web Conferencing

Blackboard Collaborate’s web conferencing tool allows you to participate in online, synchronous meetings including two-way audio, multi-point video, interactive whiteboard, application and desktop sharing, rich media, breakout rooms, and session recording all within your Blackboard courses. See Blackboard Web Conferencing for instructions on getting started.

Instant Messaging

Blackboard Instant Messaging (Blackboard IM) enables registered users to instantly connect with classmates and instructors by working with Blackboard to automatically populate a list of that user’s courses and classmates. Beyond regular chat tools, you may also use the whiteboard for study groups, to participate in your instructor’s online office hours, ask an instructor a question, video chat with classmates or colleagues, and much more. See Blackboard Instant Messaging  for instructions on downloading and setting up an account.
