Abstract: Abstract: The down turn of the economy has significantly affected the
nature of work in colleges and universities across the country. Economic
limitations have forced universities to find other means to facilitate meetings,
with colleagues and clients over long distance. Blackboard Collaborate, an
online synchronous virtual platform was purchased by the University of
Hawaii to reduce the cost of face-to-face meetings and to promote distance
learning. Even though, faculty and staff were given licenses to utilize this
online tool, many are unsure and unfamiliar with many of Blackboards
features. The purpose of this study is to provide a web-based instructional
training module to assist first time users in Blackboard Collaborate. The
focus was to assist participants in navigating and completing five
introductory training modules. Overall, participants gained positive
experiences and provided recommendations to improve site organization and
site content.
