Blackboard Collaborate eConferencing Tools

The old Elluminate eConferencing products have morphed into Blackboard Collaborate tools.  Blackboard Collaborate tools include the enconferencing suite of tools formerly called "Elluminate," and the Voice Tools, formerly "Wimba Voice Tools," which we have linked on another page.

The eConverencing tools permit synchronous, distance connections with students for webinars or online office hours, and include VOIP support, application sharing, and all the features you are used to using with eConferencing products.  Elluminate Live! can archive while it records, so that students unable to attend the synchronous event can view it later.  New this semester are Elluminate Plan and Publish, tools for developing online presentations asynchronously, on your own desktop, and then delivering them later.  The easiest and most effective way to develop rich media, online materials.

Visit the web site, to get an idea of what they are.  Then click on the links below to get a closer look at the individual tools.
