Welcome!  This is an independent user community for the Blackboard Collaborate, Elluminate, and Wimba platforms.

(If you're looking for more general public networking for education, we recommend Classroom 2.0 for educators and Student 2.0 for students.)

Start by creating a NEW account here (LearnCentral accounts have not been transferred over), then please feel free to introduce yourself, to start a forum discussion or create a special discussion group, or to just search the existing conversations.

To get a new free meeting room, you now sign up for the free 30-day, 25-seat trial of Blackboard Collaborate web conferencing by clicking here. At the end of the trial, you’ll be automatically transitioned to a 3-person vRoom. Answers to questions about the vRoom transition can be found on our vRoom FAQ.

Thanks for being here, and "keep collaborating!"
