How does an instructor get a guest link to a Blackboard Collaborate session?

To get a guest link for a Collaborate session:

  1. Go to the Blackboard Collaborate link under Course Tools, find the correct room and Edit Room
  2. Under Room Attributes on this page, turn the Allow Guests option ON
  3. Click Save at the bottom of the page.
  4. After that, a new link will appear that says Invite Guests. When you click that link, a small window will pop up that will give you the link for the session.
Additionally, when you navigate into the Collaborate Room by clicking on Join Room, the guest link will also be in a grey box on the right-hand side of the screen.
