Blackboard Collaborate is now available
Blackboard Collaborate web conferencing is now available to use within your Blackboard course. The former version, Elluminate Live! (eLive) is also available for use, and both services are available through the end of Fall 2013. Your eLive recordings will still be available though the end of Spring 2014, in which time you may want to preserve your recordings. Learn more about transitioning to Collaborate.
If you are using Mac OSX 10.8 and above and you are using Collaborate for the first time, please download the Blackboard Collaborate Launcher
before you start your session. This is a one time setup install. You
may need to adjust your system application security to allow
applications from anywhere before you can install the application. If
you have any troubles please see the Blackboard Collaborate web conferencing - First Time Users article on the Blackboard Collaborate Knowledge Base.
