Blackboard Collaborate Includes Phone Option

If you have scheduled a Blackboard Collaborate web conferencing meeting that someone now can’t attend or if you are having difficulty scheduling one because someone won't be in the office, don’t worry. Blackboard Collaborate now has a phone option that allows people to call in and have their phone work like a computer headset.

When a session is created, the organizer can click on the phone option to get a phone number and PIN. The same phone number and PIN (in addition to same URL) can be used for multiple meetings in a "session." For example, a conference planning committee doesn't have to change URLs and phone numbers each meeting.

Contact me if you need help setting up a Blackboard Collaborate web conference.

Lync has similar tools as Blackboard Collaborate, but the N.D. University System has not purchased the phone option for Lync web conferencing.
