Cloud Hosted Web Conferencing 


Blackboard Collaborate is a web conferencing service that allows moderator-led Internet-based e-learning with application sharing, breakout rooms, recording sessions, sharing PowerPoint presentations, full duplex audio, instant messaging and much more.

On May 28th, 2014,  Information Technology Services (ITS) moved away from a self-hosted Blackboard Collaborate environment called Global Campus to a cloud based environment. Blackboard Collaborate is integrated within ICON, the learning management system.

Interested persons may contact their local IT support for further details. Additionally, the ITS Help Desk may be emailed at or reached by phone at 319-384-HELP (4357).
