Teaching and Learning Tools
The Online Rooms tool uses the web conferencing program, BB-Collaborate (formally Elluminate), to give instructors the ability to present course materials to their students in live, interactive online sessions. These sessions can have audio, text chat, video, slide presentations, and polling as well as web touring and application sharing. This tool is also useful in online advising and tutoring.
When using this program, there is no permanent program to purchase or install, BB-Collaborate temporarily downloads their software to your computer each time you enter a session. You will need to have the ability to install software on the computer you use for this to run properly.
We've created an Online Rooms Student Guide to help students get started using Online rooms. It shows how to enter the session, where tools are located in the program, and how to use them.
Please note that these instructions start after you have entered the Learn@ UWSuperior course that uses Online Rooms and after you've clicked on the "Join" link (see image). We have also created some BB-Collaborate Tutorial Videos that will help students get started as well.
