Intro to Blackboard Collaborate

To use Blackboard Collaborate, it’s best to have both a webcam and a microphone. If you are using a Mac, a laptop, a tablet, or a cell phone, a camera and microphone are most likely built-in. If you are using a desktop PC, it is easiest to use a webcam that has an integrated microphone, such as the Logitech C920.

Every course in Blackboard has a Collaborate room attached to it that you can go to at any time by following these directions.
