Transcript of "Waldo - Blackboard Collaborate Presentation"

  1. 1. Rebecca Waldo EDTE 350
  2. 2.  Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate) is an online conferencing tool available in Blackboard.  The session is set up by an instructor, presenter or other moderator and students/participants can log in through Blackboard, dial-in, or access the session via URL link.
  3. 3.  Once logged in, the participant can communicate with the moderator and/or other participants via type-chat, microphone, and video.  The session can be recorded and viewed in a variety of formats after the session for anyone that couldn’t attend the live version.
  4. 4. The program opens to a window like the one above. Everything is laid out in plain view. As the moderator, you have access to more tools and presentation options.
  5. 5.  Their website has many tutorials and videos: http:// www.blackboard.com/Platforms/Collaborate/Services/On-D  The following is a video tutorial for Blackboard Collaborate participants: http:// www.brainshark.com/blackboardinc/vu?pi=zGLzYw5XBz35
  6. 6.  For the most part, Blackboard Collaborate is used at colleges using the Blackboard LMS.  Instructors use the program for weekly meetings, study sessions, and individual tutoring.
  7. 7.  For tutoring and general Q&A sessions, most moderators use the main screen.  There are options to load PowerPoint Presentations, view documents, and even open up web pages.  The moderator can withhold options from participants during these times.
  8. 8.  I have used it in lecture settings for online courses, presenting to students and clarifying difficult topics.  In addition, I have used the program to run professional development sessions for remote instructors.This collaboration connects people who may normally feel isolated.
  9. 9.  Blackboard Collaborate is an extremely useful tool in distance learning.  It connects faculty to faculty, students to faculty and students to students.  The program has become increasingly intuitive, which is great for adult learners who may have trouble with new technology.
  10. 10.  The biggest weakness, that I have seen, is the program’s large bandwidth needs. This causes many people to become disconnected during the sessions.  The need to download each individual session can also cause problems.  Not having the right version of Firefox or Java can also hinder the process.
  11. 11.  Even with some of the technology issues, I think this program is invaluable to distance learning.  6 out of 7 of our instructors use the program for weekly lectures.  Once our students are counseled on troubleshooting, there are rarely repeat issues.
