EASI - Two Free Webinars - Web Conferencing and Blackboard Collaborate

EASI Webinar Exploring Blackboard Collaborate Accessibility Features is a package of 2 free EASI Webinars:
  •  Tuesday, November 4: Introduction to Web Conferencing
  •  Tuesday, November 11: Experiencing Blackboard Collaborate First-hand Webinar 1: Introduction to Web Conferencing

Introduction to Web Conferencing
 Tuesday Nov. 4 at 11 Pacific, noon Mountain, 1 Central and 2 PM Eastern (all standard times)  

Presenter: Norm Coombs

Web conferencing systems are complex and powerful. This introduction will outline these features and discuss the issues each creates for accessibility. A significant aspect of accessibility frequently depends on the presenter. The particular features the presenter selects and the way the presenter makes use of them all become part of their accessibility or inaccessibility. This introduction Webinar is intended as background for the Webinar on Nov. 11. That Webinar will actually be using Blackboard Collaborate, and this Webinar will help you be sure your computer is configured for that experience.

The Accessibility of Blackboard Collaborate
Tuesday Nov. 11 at 11 Pacific, Noon Mountain, 1 Central and 2 Eastern STANDARD TIMES 

Presenters: David Hastie, Director Product Management, Blackboard Collaborate and Connect and Hadi Rangin from the University of Washington 

This Webinar will explain and demonstrate the accessibility of Blackboard Collaborate. Participants will hear about its features and be able to actually experience them as the Webinar is being held in Blackboard Collaborate.
