Blackboard Collaborate is the web conferencing application that we use in Fronter for live web based meetings.

In Fronter, there are two different ways to use Collaborate:

  • In a room: ClassLive with whiteboard and chat that can be added to a room and entered by all the members of that room.
  • As personal tool: Meeting can be added to the personal tool bar where up to three people can communicate and share desktop. This possibility is open for the students as well as teachers.

Please find more information on how to use the tools in our help or see Blackboard Collaborate's own pages.

First time usage

When you use one of the Collaborate tools within Fronter for the first time, you need to download and install the so called 'Launcher'. After clicking on either ClassLive or Meeting, a new tab opens and you are presented with an easy to follow step by step.
