Copy & Paste Message Content

Have you considered which video platform you are using for your virtual classes this year?

While all video platforms are allowed, the university encourages the use of Blackboard Collaborate because students can reach out to university support when tech issues arise. Additionally because it is located within Blackboard, no need to worry about privacy issues or downloading any software!

Centralizing virtual classroom platforms in the same locations throughout courses eliminates confusion for students and creates consistency among faculty. You can access Blackboard Collaborate here.
