Learn to use Collaborate

e-Learning Services offers a self-paced training course designed to assist faculty who want to utilize Collaborate in their course.  In order to understand and use Collaborate in your LCSC course, it is highly recommended you take the training course.  The "Collaborate Ultra Live Lecture Steaming" course is located in Blackboard.  If, after reviewing the course materials, you still have questions or need assistance with Collaborate, your instructional designer can assist.
