Does anyone know if there are plans to have the ability to assign individual rooms or should I say multiple rooms in a single course? And does a student have to access the room or can they be sent a telephone number so they can call in?
Hi David, the instructor cannot send a phone number ahead of time. When the student logs into Collaborate, they select Audio Options, from there they can choose a Microphone, or for the system to generate a phone number and session number. It then tracks that number and session to that student for that session. It's randomly done at that time. It's very intuitive and easy to use though.
Hi David, it was announced a month ago by Blackboard that they are in beta with Breakout Groups in Collaborate Ultra. This may help with what you are looking for. The ability to phone into a Collaborate session has been around since January 2016, so yes that can be done.
Do you know if I as an instructor can send the student the phone number to dial in or does the student have to access the page and retrieve the phone dial in number?
