Blackboard Collaborate Web Conferencing @ SDSU
Educators and students can engage and interact as if they were in a traditional classroom, with as good as, or even better, outcomes. With Blackboard Collaborate™ you have the functionality you need for a student-centered learning environment, such as two-way audio, multi-point video, interactive whiteboard, application and desktop sharing, rich media, breakout rooms, and session recording. These tools are at your finger tips and easy to use.
Blackboard Collaborate is seamlessly integrated within Blackboard Learn at SDSU, but non-SDSU users can also be invited to participate in live online sessions...the possibilities for live online collaboration are endless!
Get started today with some informational Quick Guides or step-by-step Tutorials. Remember Blackboard Collaborate is also a great tool for hosting department meetings or creating a professional development opportunity for members of your community.
