Use Blackboard Collaborate Plan to organize and script session content ahead of time, automating routine tasks so you can focus on facilitating real-time interaction.

Organize content and interactions ahead of time

Drag-and-drop plan creation and a plan validation tool helps you easily find errors. Then during your Blackboard Collaborate web conferencing session, trigger each action, like starting the recording, advancing to the next slide, creating breakout rooms, loading and presenting a quiz, or playing a multimedia file, with a single click.
