Blackboard Collaborate Demo Sessions
To better prepare instructors to moderate Blackboard Collaborate Sessions, please attend an online Blackboard Collaborate (BBC) Demo Sessions to explore the tool in-depth. We will explore session set-up, loading content, file sharing, application overview and much more! A detailed email will be sent to participants prior to the session with preparatory instructions to set up their computer system. Please plan on attending one of these online sessions from the computer systems from which you will deliver the session on your own.
