Instructors and Students: Joining a Blackboard Collaborate Session

  • Step 1: Blackboard Collaborate requires the installation of the Launcher program on your computer. You must have administrator rights to the computer prior to installing the program, or contact the administrator to install the program for you.
  • Step 2: Access the Blackboard Collaborate session  scheduled by the instructor on the date and time set up for the synchronous session. The instructor may also choose to record the session at the time, allowing students to view the pre-recorded session at a later time.
