Blackboard Collaborate: How to Join a Session

There are two main ways you will be asked to join a session

Join through the Module

Blackboard Collaborate might be used in place of a classroom session in your module.

The module convenor will let you know where in the course you will find all the Blackboard Collaborate Sessions.
