Blackboard (BB) Collaborate

Math Assistance is using Blackboard Collaborate. Blackboard Collaborate is a video chat application that enables you to call in and talk to professional staff in the Math Assistance Area. It utilizes video with screen sharing so staff can talk you through your math questions while you watch and listen.

How Blackboard Collaborate Works

Call using Blackboard Collaborate during the Math Assistance hours and ask your questions. The link to the Blackboard Collaborate session can be found in your Math, Physics, or Chemistry Blackboard course site, on the Math Assistance Information Flyer or in Blackboard under the student support tab in the Learning Commons box. Look for Math Assistance LIVE!

You can work with a Math Assistance staff member immediately or you can ask for a study room where you can work on your own or with a group. When you need help, help will be right there.
