The Blackboard Collaborate User Templates listed below were developed by a Blackboard Collaborate user group formed at UW-Madison. The group convenes on a regular basis to share discoveries & approaches. These templates were designed to help those with little or no experience using Blackboard Collaborate decide how best to use the tool while giving basic instructions on how to use it for their selected purpose.
