  4. 4. Deliver Distance Learning Blackboard Collaborate is used to deliver distance learning in online and hybrid courses. "Through the use of Blackboard Collaborate, I am able to continue to have direct, personal connections with my students on an individual basis through "virtual office hours" as well as on a class-wide basis for class meetings and lectures. I am able to communicate more naturally, giving my lessons the same feel as in-class lessons. It is as if I am physically present with the students.” - Margaret Whitbeck, Instructor for Food and Nutrition, Framingham State University 4
  5. 5. Project Delivery Framingham State faculty use Blackboard Collaborate to deliver course content and also ask students to present their course projects. “In my Geography of the U.S. and Canada online course, I use Blackboard Collaborate to have virtual online lectures with the students. Throughout a typical 50-minute Blackboard Collaborate session, I display graphics (such as maps and tables) and include annotation in the graphics as well as share my desktop to display webpages. At the conclusion of the course, I also require students to research a topic related to one of the regions we have discussed and then present their findings in their own recorded Blackboard Collaborate session.” - David Merwin, Associate Professor Geography, Framingham State University 5
  6. 6. Virtual Guest Speaker Blackboard Collaborate is used to bring guest speakers and experts from around the world into online or face-to-face classes. "Inviting guest speakers to the classroom using web conferencing with BB Collaborate gave students an opportunity to listen and interact with a talented young designer employed by a multinational athletic footwear conglomerate (headquartered on the west coast of the United States). Students gained valuable insight and a deeper understanding of important class concepts and described the experience as…interesting, inspiring, enlightening, exciting, informative, worthwhile, creative, excellent, and innovating!” - Virginia Noon, Assistant Professor Fashion Design and Retailing, Framingham State University 6
