What is Blackboard Collaborate?
Blackboard Collaborate, by Blackboard Inc., is a web video conferencing and webinar platform used for online teaching and learning. It allows you to create virtual classrooms and online meeting spaces to share and discuss presentation and learning materials, through audio, video and chat tools. Webinar rooms include a collaborative whiteboard tool that allows students to interact with each other and their teacher in real time. Webinars can be recorded so that students can access them at another time.
Collaborate opens in your browser, so you don't have to install any software to join a session.
