Collaborate: for synchronous and asynchronous teaching

Collaborate allows class members to meet in a virtual classroom online. Incorporating Collaborate sessions in your online or hybrid class allows a high level of interaction between you and your students. You can even use collaborate for virtual office hours.

Blackboard Collaborate: Features Showcase
The new Collaborate is a fully redesigned, high-quality, browser-based web conferencing solution that makes distance teaching and learning simple, crystal clear, and worry free. Speedy launching and simple deployment mean educators and students can focus on teaching and learning with less hand-holding. And with broadened device support, including Chromebooks, participation is possible anytime, anywhere.
