We are pleased to tell you that we will be installing a new and improved Blackboard building block for Collaborate this weekend. This building block completely fixes the following issues:
Repeat Session option fixed – After the upgrade, you will be able use the repeat session option to setup multiple meetings all at the same time without receiving an error. Meetings can be created for the same day every week, every month, and several other combinations for the whole semester. Additionally, these meetings will now be able to be edited once they are created.
Recordings made in private meetings are now private – After the upgrade, you will be able to setup private meetings for groups of students and any recordings created in those meetings will only be available to the students that you invited to those meetings.
We have also pulled initial data regarding Collaborate usage so far this semester and noticed that there are several of you who still have not yet used Collaborate this semester. It’s not too late to try out Collaborate with your class(es). Please know that we are here to assist you in making your experience in the Collaborate Pilot a great success.
