Blackboard Collaborate is UGA's current online collaborative learning solution. Collaborate sessions can be setup and accessed inside and outside eLC by UGA users enrolled in courses, UGA users not enrolled in courses, and non-UGA users depending on the settings and permissions. Users may participate in live Collaborate sessions via computer, mobile device, or phone. Blackboard Collaborate also includes an archive feature that allows both audio and video recordings to be created for reviewing 15-30 minutes after a live session has ended.
The Web Tour in Blackboard Collaborate allows moderators to share webpages with participants in the session. Moderators can allow participants to explore shared webpages independently, or they can require participants follow along as the moderator navigates the page. The Web Tour also maintains a navigation, making it easier to revisit specific webpages and navigate between them.
Step 1: Begin Web Tour
To begin a web tour, select the Web Tour button from the Collaboration Toolbar.
Step 2: Enter URL
Enter the URL of a web site in the Address field and press Enter.
Step 3: Follow Me
- By leaving the Follow Me box checked, participants will be forced to follow along with the moderator as he or she navigates the web page.
- By unchecking the Follow Me box, participants will be able to browse the website freely.
Step 4: Page Navigation
Use the Back and Forward buttons to move through the pages you have visited.
