What's New and Improved

We're continually evolving to improve the teaching and learning experience. In this release we focused on making it easier to tell us about your session experience, set your status away, and minimizing the content resizing tools.

Help Make Collaborate Even Better

Your session experience is important to us. Knowing if your session was excellent, good, or poor helps us make Collaborate even better.

We've made it easier to tell us what it was like. Click Leave Session and share your experience with us. If the experience was good or lower, please tell us what type of issues you had.

This is entirely optional and will not open a support case or prompt a follow up.

One-Click Presence

Change your status with one click. Click Set as Away to let others know you are away. Click I'm back! when you return.

Microsoft® Edge Browser Is Now Supported

Participants can now join sessions from Windows 10 using the Edge browser. The experience is equivalent to Internet Explorer® and is supported by the Flash® plugin.

Minimize Your Content Resizing Tools

You can now expand and minimize your content resizing tools reducing the clutter on your screen.
