How to use the Timer tool in Blackboard Collaborate
You can set a timer that all participants can see count down for anything from a break-out room session to timing a poll. When the timer goes off it emits a beep as well as sends a notification to all the participants. To start the timer simply select “Timer” > ”Start Timer” from the “Tools” dropdown menu at the top center of your screen.
The Timer appears above the Whiteboard.
