DE Tip of the Week

The first space you see when you enter Blackboard Collaborate is the whiteboard. Typically, it is used as a slideshow space, but it’s also a space in which to write, draw, and collaborate. The toolbar is found on the left and contains the selection tool, a pointer, a pen tool to draw, a text tool to add words, a line tool, a screen capture tool, and a clip art tool. Tools are available to moderators and participants for interactive discussions. All members also have to open to save whiteboards for future reference.
