Cloud Hosted Web Conferencing
Web conferencing at the University of Iowa is supported using Collaborate a virtual meeting software product that allows moderator-led Internet-based e-learning and collaboration with options for full duplex audio, sharing PPT presentations, instant messaging, application sharing, breakout rooms, recording sessions for later playback and more.
Beginning May 28th, 2014 ITS moved from a self-hosted environment called Global Campus to a cloud hosted version of Collaborate. The cloud based version will also be integrated within the ICON learning management system.
Online support is available at Blackboard Collaborate Technical Support and the ITS Office of Teaching, Learning, & Technology Webconferencing support page.
