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.
The web-based training module was developed to help first time users of Blackboard Collaborate
