If this is the first time you will be using Blackboard Collaborate Web Conferencing, you may be prompted to download some software which may take anywhere from 2 to 20 minutes depending upon your Internet connection speed. You can pre-configure your system with the required software by going to the support page located at:

Please make sure your computer has a microphone and speakers to be able to talk and hear while you are in the Blackboard Collaborate Web Conference session.

Please make sure your computer has a microphone and speakers to be able to talk and hear while you are in the session. Ideally, use a headset (microphone with wearable speakers) or use earbuds rather than external speakers to avoid audio feedback when your mic is activated. If viewing as a group, log on with one computer (using the chapter name for identification), project the session on a screen with an LCD projector, and use external speakers so that the entire audence can hear (in doing so, please be sure to have the microphone muted unless asking a question to avoid feedback).
