Bb Collaborate Interface Introducing Blackboard Collaborate

Blackboard Collaborate™ is a simple, convenient, and reliable web conferencing solution built for education and training. Engage with the material and your students. Thanks to robust collaboration and conference tools, everyone feels like they're in the same room together, regardless of their location or device.

Curtin staff can use Bb Collaborate for:

  • learning and teaching purposes from a Blackboard unit
  • meetings and collaborating with peers or research partners via a 'virtual office'.

Bb Collaborate has been integrated within Blackboard to facilitate easy scheduling and streamlined access to Collaborate sessions.
