Blackboard Collaborate Original - Using the Timer (UW-Madison)

How to use the Timer tool in Blackboard Collaborate

(Note: This is for Blackboard Collaborate Original only, if you are looking for help or information on Collaborate Ultra, go here

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.
