Teaching and Learning with Blackboard Collaborate Web Conferencing
The Teaching and Learning with Collaborate workshop is designed to help participants build a solid foundation and understanding of the Collaborate product. The workshop uses a modular training format that allows you to create a targeted experience for participants based on your training and implementation needs. Collaborate Ultra is being developed following a continuous release methodology. This means that new features and functionality are being added to the product. As such, new training modules will be added to this workshop to stay synchronized with the product. Clients will choose 4 modules. A Blackboard Consultant will work with your team to ensure that the learning objectives fit the needs of your institution.
Audience: These online sessions are appropriate for faculty, administrators, IT staff, support staff, project leads, and anyone who plans to use, or support the use of Collaborate.
Blackboard Collaborate with the Ultra Experience
Blackboard has always been a leader in providing communication tools and we are excited to broaden this topic to the Collaborate Ultra experience. This fully asynchronous course is designed for the busy professional who needs a flexible way to quickly get up to speed using Collaborate with the Ultra experience. You’ll also have access to an expert Blackboard consultant who will help guide you through the course and answer questions along the way. Participants will be able to practice suggested tasks in a Collaborate practice room, and you’ll have opportunities for knowledge checks throughout the course to solidify your understanding of the platform and web conferencing. You’ll be able to share your ideas by contributing to discussion boards, and learn from the developing repository of ideas accumulated from other participants, who have previously competed the course.
Blackboard Collaborate Web Conferencing Administration
The Collaborate Administration Services workshop is designed to help administrators understand the Session Administration System as well as understand how Collaborate integrates with a Learning Management System (LMS). The workshop provides a choice of up to four (4) modules for the option to customize your experience to align with your institution’s need. Each module is designed to build off the previous, so it is recommended that participants complete modules. We recognize not all clients are the same and may be using different learning management systems, therefore a Blackboard Consultant will work with your team to ensure that the learning objectives fit the needs of your institution.
Audience: System Administrators, IT staff, support staff, project leads; and anyone who plans to use, or support the use of Collaborate.
