Web Conferencing for staff
Blackboard Collaborate (the new system replacing Wimba and Elluminate) enables you to run web-based sessions with your students using audio, virtual whiteboards, text chat and video. Each tutor and student accesses the virtual room from a web browser on their own computer. Web conferencing systems are sometimes referred to as virtual classrooms.
The system can be used to run tutorials, lectures, meetings
and other virtual events, although preference will be given to academic
UCL is piloting the use of a virtual classroom system in order to make recommendations for wider use of such a system across the University. If you are a UCL staff member who is interested in participating in this pilot please contact E-Learning Environments.
The following link is for UCL staff only. If you are a UCL student who wants to participate in a session that your tutor has organised please see the student web conferencing page.
