Course Detail

ELUCV03 - Run webinars with Blackboard Collaborate (online)

In this one hour session we will give an overview of Blackboard Collaborate functionality, sharing content on-screen and effective use with students.

If you are already familiar with the basic features of Blackboard Collaborate, then you may find it useful to attend the session ‘QMACV01 Interactivity in Online Teaching’ instead.

If the session is not run at a time when you can attend, there are also video guides available at, text guides at for getting started with making videos, and weekly e-learning drop-ins at where you can speak to a member of the team.

The E-Learning Unit are running online training sessions for staff to get help with teaching remotely. These sessions are designed to show you the most commonly used functions of the tools, explore how you can use them with students, give you some hands-on practice and have your questions answered, supported by guidance documentation.

All sessions will be delivered online. Please access this session on the following link:
