Blackboard Collaborate offers a collaborative, interactive, and mobile learning experience that was created to engage students in the learning environment. These tools are used to create virtual classrooms, offices and meeting spaces that open more possibilities to more students, wherever they are.
*Integrates with Moodle.
Sample Lecture Using Collaborate
MC's Dr. Mark McComb uses the program Blackboard Collaborate to teach his online class on Capitalism. Below is a link that illustrates how well this works. He conducts a "virtual class" each week and it is recorded by the system (formerly Elluminate) so that a student who misses the class can obtain the recording.
