September 18, 2013

Collaboration allows the instructor and student to participate in real time, online classroom discussions and presentations.

What is Blackboard Collaborate?

Blackboard Collaborate is a world-class, real-time training, demonstration and collaboration environment that is powerful, flexible, and easy to use. The environment enables the delivery of live, online learning, training, coaching, mentoring, and meeting. Effectiveness is increased by engaging participants with the ability to talk over the Internet (with full, 2-way audio) or using integrated telephony, exchange text messages, display live video, share whiteboards, multimedia files, and applications–all in one intuitive, graphical interface. Whether the environment is hosted by Collaborate or installed on your server, it is easy to use, and customizable.

Unlike the internet, Collaborate is built specifically for live, multimedia collaboration. Our unique Collaborative Communications Framework (CCF) automatically ensures that everything is in the right place at the right time. Whether you have a dial-up modem or a high-speed LAN, you get the same superior quality, high performance, and dependability–with no lag  time or garbled communication. So you can focus on content, not technology.
