Dear Jon,

Invite colleagues and friends to join your web conference and discover how the Blackboard Collaborate can improve learner engagement hands on:

Enter your trial as a moderator:

Explore Collaborate from the educator’s perspective.

Enter your trial as a participant:

Access Collaborate as a learner.Use polls and reports to improve the learning experience.

Moderators can poll participants in their sessions. They can use a poll where they choose YES or NO as an answer, or give several answers to choose from. Participants only see the choice they make, while Moderators can see an overview of all the choices made.

The new session attendance report provides you with an overview of when participants joined and left the sessions. It also provides details of how long participants were present in the session on average.

You can also take a deep dive and see the full report as to when each participant joined and left the session. With this knowledge, you can check in with individual participants to see if they were having any technical issues or need a quick review of what was presented and discussed.

Did you know? Collaborate was built specifically for Education

Collaborate is a very powerful web conferencing solution in its own right, but it was built specifically to work within an education environment, integrating seamlessly with both Blackboard Learn and Moodlerooms.
