Collaborate: Participation Requirements

If you plan to use live web-conferencing from your computer, simply click on the Join Course Room link located in the Collaborate Room content area in your course. To view recorded class sessions, change to the Recordings tab by selecting the hamburger menu above the Course Room and choosing Recordings.  If you don't immediately see the recording listed, you may need to search for a "Recordings in a Range". 

This class uses the Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Experience.  Please review the following points for any questions you may have on the requirements of using Collaborate Ultra for Online Live.  For a link to the Collaborate Ultra Help for Participants, click here.
