Web-Based Video Conferencing

Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate) is a web-based video conferencing system which allows participants to engage in two-way audio, multi-point video, interactive whiteboard, application and desktop sharing, rich media, breakout rooms, and session recording.

Meeting rooms can now be created by the instructor within a Desire2Learn course by selecting "Communications" > "Online Rooms".

To request a meeting room outside of Desire2Learn, EIU faculty and staff can contact Julie Lockett.
