Blackboard Collaborate is a web conferencing system available within Blackboard Learn. Students and instructors access the system by logging into their Blackboard Learn course sections. UMass Boston course participants do not require additional accounts, usernames, or login sequences to access web conferencing sessions. Instructors have the ability to provide slide presentations, share applications and documents with students, while learners can participate with audio and text chat tools provided. Participants access web conferencing sessions from within their Blackboard Learn courses at scheduled times designated by instructor(s).
