Webinar instructions:  

Before attending the webinar, go to the participant link and run the set up wizard to make sure you can see and hear the webinar.  Also, if you have a microphone, you can test to make sure the microphone is working.

1. Log into Blackboard Collaborate using this participant link:

(Note: the Student Success Series webinars will have a different link; it will be in the Student Success series room:

 2. To hear the speaker, you either need headphones or a speaker for your computer, or you can can dial in via phone.  If you dial in, you still need to log in with a computer in order to see the visual part of the presentation.

Dial-in number(s): Phone - 571-392-7703

Phone PIN: 299 966 224 49 

3. To communicate with the speaker and the rest of the webinar attendees by voice, you can use a microphone on your computer or you can use the phone (see the number above).  Most participants choose to communicate using the chat box in the virtual room; you do not need a microphone or call in if you communicate by using the chat box.
