Blackboard Collaborate allows members to meet and train virtually regardless of their location. Participants connect to the Blackboard Collaborate classroom through a web browser, permitting them to talk to the rest of the class through their computer-based microphone and speakers or headset. Students can view PowerPoint presentations, write on a whiteboard, send messages via the chat box, and answer polling questions.
Blackboard Collaborate licenses for each LINGOs member are managed by the Key Contact. If you are interested in receiving a supervisor license please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for supervisor accounts.
Details about what your membership includes can be found here.
As part of the LINGOs support we occasionally offer a Blackboard Moderator training. If you have missed this in the past you can watch the training webinar here. Note that this training is for Blackboard Standard.
If you need a refresher on polling, application sharing, or any feature, there are printable guides and short tutorials you can watch. Book mark this site and go there often. They also occasionally offer free live training, so it’s worth checking in now and then to see what’s coming up. On Demand Learning
From the Blackboard Collaborate On Demand Learning site, an orientation for participants. Good to share with your staff. She covers everything a participant needs to know before their first session. We bet if you watch it, you’ll learn something new. Watch the recording
Application Sharing can be difficult to demonstrate in our live training so we’ve created this short tutorial to show you how it works. Click here to watch the tutorial. It is about two minutes long.
There are a ton of these out there, but we use this one. http://tools.atozteacherstuff.com/word-search-maker/wordsearch.php
