So, what do you need to participate in a Collaborate Meeting? Well, be logged into your computer – with or without a camera. You can participate visually and /or just by voice. The first time may seem a little strange, but we’ll get the hang of it, and it’s a great way to keep in touch without the drive! If you need a camera, please let me know, and I’ll try to get one for you. For those of you who are not familiar with Blackboard Collaborate meetings, I’ll attach some information for you on the meeting announcement. On the day of the meeting – you can log in 5-10 minutes ahead and get your video/audio set up.
