Join a Collaborate Session from Blackboard

When joining a Blackboard Collaborate Session, we recommend using Google Chrome. Use Safari if you're joining from an iPhone or iPad. If your teacher has asked you to join the session from Blackboard, access the relevant course and locate the Blackboard Collaborate link (your teacher might have called the link something different).

Click on the relevant session title, and choose Join Session. The anonymous dial in details to join using a telephone are also displayed here.

Once you join the Collaborate session, set up your mic and webcam. You might see a browser pop up asking for your permission to use your microphone and camera - this should be accepted to use all of the features within Collaborate. Follow the on screen prompts to select the correct webcam and microphone, especially if you have multiple devices connected.
