Collaborate (formerly Elluminate) is a real-time virtual classroom environment designed for both distance education and online collaboration. Instructors can use Collaborate to add real-time interaction to distance learning, extend the boundaries of the traditional classroom, and engage more students in more ways. Orientation sessions and quick reference guides on how to use Collaborate are available on the Collaborate web site.
UPDATE: CSULB upgraded the BeachBoard Online Rooms' tool to the newest version (Collaborate v. 12) on December 20, 2012. For more information, please visit our BB Collaborate update page.

Instructors and staff may conduct live meetings with colleagues via Academic Technology Services' (OAT) video conference room in AS-114. The room has seating for 20. The OAT conference room uses the Lifesize video conferencing system. The remote site must use a similar system such as a Lifesize, Tandberg, or Polycom. Our equipment facilitates live transmission of video, PowerPoint, DVD, CD, and documents via a document camera. We can connect up to five additional meeting sites at one time. There are no charges for instructors and staff to use the video conferencing facility. Click to make a reservation and view logistics.
