New Virtual Classroom

We are delighted to announce the availability of a new virtual classroom tool in Blackboard.

Blackboard Collaborate is a powerful online classroom/meeting space which allows you to deliver lectures, seminars, tutorials or meetings in real time with participants logging in from wherever they are. Users can connect via the internet and using mobile devices or webcams and microphones, communicate in real-time to deliver and share content. There’s also a text chat facility, polling options and break-out rooms for group work.

There is a huge potential for using this tool not only for learning and teaching but for many more scenarios and we’re really pleased to be able to introduce this new facility for the whole university.

We’re holding two launch events to introduce Collaborate and hope to see as many of you there as possible. You can sign up via this link  or contact us to find out more.
