Description

Blackboard Collaborate 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 relevant materials on the whiteboard, and collaborate with them to create presentation materials.

In the online version of this tour, we will deliver the training in Collaborate, which is a great way to learn about the tool in an active way.
