When can I join a Blackboard Collaborate session

You will be informed of the times of the Blackboard Collaborate sessions for your course on your course’s online site or via e-mail. You can log in to each Blackboard Collaborate session up to one hour prior to the scheduled start time. To join a session, just click on the appropriate link (at the appropriate time), and follow the instructions on the screen.

To ensure that you are ready to participate fully when the session begins, we recommend joining each session at least 15 minutes before the scheduled start time to make sure your audio is working properly. To do this, follow the instructions again in the Audio page of this Startup Kit.

Remember, you can also configure your audio days or weeks prior to your class through the Blackboard Collaborate configuration room – you don’t have to wait until right before your class starts!
