What is Collaborate?

Blackboard Collaborate is a tool in which to conduct web-conferencing as well as comprehensive online learning.

Creating Sessions

Sessions can ONLY be created using Sakai.  NPS Staff and Faculty may contact to request a Sakai site which they can use to create sessions.  

Once sessions are created, participants do not need to be enrolled in the course site to join. Session creators will get a Guest Link which they can email to desired participants.

Connecting to a Session

Use the NPS Collaborate Test Session at any time to test your connection to a Collaborate Session. Instructions and troubleshooting for various operating systems are below.

Session Date/Times

The Sakai Collaborate Interface detects your location so any dates/times specified will be in your timezone. Dates/Times will be adjusted for others in their own time zones.
