Collaborate (formerly known as Elluminate) is NAU's instructional web conferencing system. It works on both Macs and Windows computers and functions either as a standalone tool or as an add-in to Bb Learn. Collaborate allows you to deliver live lectures over the Internet, text chat, share whiteboards and share applications. Use it to add interaction to your online class or hold virtual office hours. In this workshop, you will learn how to schedule and facilitate meetings from your computer with other faculty and/or students from a distance. You will be able to speak with them, show them relavent materials on the whiteboard, and collaborate with them to create presentation materials. Two to three days after you enroll in this class you will receive an email with further instructions.


At the end of this session you will be able to:
* Address your personal questions about web conferencing
* Schedule web conferencing sessions
* Use the whiteboard tool
* Use the Audio or Video tool
