Blackboard Collaborate Startup Kit

Blackboard Collaborate is a live, online classroom where you can interact and work with your instructor(s) and fellow students in real time. You can go to your Blackboard Collaborate sessions from any computer with an Internet connection.

How to navigate through this Startup Kit

This Blackboard Collaborate Startup Kit is designed to help you learn about how to use Blackboard Collaborate and includes instructions for setting up your computer, logging into your Blackboard Collaborate sessions(s), and using the various tools you will find there.

Work your way through the entire Blackboard Collaborate Startup Kit before logging into your Blackboard Collaborate session so that you know what to do once you get there. You can work your way through this Kit in order (using the Table of Contents as your guide), or jump to whichever pages you feel you need to review.

If you ever get lost while going through the Startup Kit, use the menu on the left-hand side of the Startup Kit window – this menu lists all the sections you see below in the Table of Contents, so hopefully you will always be able to figure out where you are!

If you look on the right-hand side of the Startup Kit, you will find information on how to contact the Onlinehelp Desk.

And remember, if, when working in your Blackboard Collaborate session, you forget how to use a tool, you can always come back to this Startup Kit and review the information relevant to that tool!
