Blackboard Collaborate Cohort Program
for Wimba Classroom Customers

Next program begins October 16, 2013 (date subject to change). Sign up below.

Are you ready for Blackboard Collaborate? Before upgrading, we recommend you attend our Blackboard Collaborate Cohort Program for Wimba Classroom Customers. If you want to learn about the new front-end and integration functionality of Blackboard Collaborate web conferencing, this 8-week webinar series is for you. And it's FREE!

Learn from the Collaborate Team. Share experiences and ideas with other institutions who are in the process of upgrading or who are already using Blackboard Collaborate.  Ultimately, the Cohort Program brings like-minded customers together, so you can collectively move together through this change management phase and get the resources you need to be successful.
