Virtual Meetings: WebEx vs. Blackboard Collaborate

Wednesday, March 13, 2019

Storrs Campus
Only line only using WebEx

Online only using WebEx (https://uconn-cmr.webex.com/join/kps05003) and Blackboard Collaborate Ultra (https://us.bbcollab.com/guest/d986329edfef42769b391c50935cdc6e) This workshop will increase your knowledge about and comfort level using either WebEx or Blackboard Ultra Collaborate as a communication and collaboration tool. You’ll learn how to use either of these products for small groups and online (virtual) office hours as well as which to use for your needs (office hours, guest lecturers, share screens in meetings, etc.). We will begin the workshop by going to my WebEx Personal Room at: https://uconn-cmr.webex.com/join/kps05003 Then the second half of the training will be in Blackboard Collaborate at: https://us.bbcollab.com/guest/d986329edfef42769b391c50935cdc6e
