Whiteboard in Blackboard Collaborate

In the Whiteboard, blank screens can be drawn on or written on, or used to display MS PowerPoint or OpenOffice.org Impress presentations to participants. The Whiteboard is the main visual presentation area of Blackboard Collaborate (see image below).

Note that your level of control in the Whiteboard will be limited unless your instructor/moderator has given you (temporary) permissions to add content to the Whiteboard (for example, for a presentation). In other words, normally you will be an observer of activity on the Whiteboard only. For information about using the whiteboard as a moderator/presenter, go to the Whiteboard present section of this startup kit.
