Web tours in Blackboard Collaborate

Moderators in Blackboard Collaborate sessions can also send participants to websites.  To conduct a Web Tour


  • Click on the Web Tour button in the toolbar, or go to the View menu and select Web Tour.
  • Enter the URL of the website you wish to tour and hit Enter or Return.
  • A browser window will open both for you, as moderator, and for each of the other participants in the Whiteboard area of your Blackboard Collaborate window.
  • Make sure the Follow Me button (to the right of the URL entry field) is selected. This will ensure that the participants will see all the pages you navigate to.
  • To shut down the Web Tour and return to the Whiteboard, click on the Whiteboard button at the top, left-hand side of the Whiteboard area (see image below).
