Use the course room in Collaborate

What is it?

The Course Room is available for you and your students to go in and use at any time. It is a space to hold adhoc Collaborate live sessions on your module

What does it do?

To join, create or manage sessions, the Collaborate links are in the left-hand menu of your module. The ‘Join Session’ link is where you can join all sessions that are open. You can also access the Course Room from here. 

You may want to close it before and/or during your scheduled sessions to avoid confusion (this is shown below).
