*Because space is limited for each session, participants are asked to log in as groups where possible and only attend one of the sessions.


REQUIRED PRIOR TO TRAINING SESSION: The first time you use Blackboard Collaborate-Elluminate Live!, you may be prompted to download some software which may take anywhere from 2 to 20 minutes depending upon your Internet connection speed. As a number of problems may occur at this stage, it is important to complete this step prior to the training.  You can pre-configure your system with the required software by going to the support page located at:



This will ensure that you will be able to get into the training session


When you enter the training session:

Enter your name (First and Last) at the login prompt.
This training session does not require a password to join. Please leave the password field blank.

To join the session, copy and paste the URL, Training Link, into your browser.  Retyping the link may cause problems as there are underscores in the address which are difficult to see.

Please make sure your computer speakers are on (not muted) to be able to hear while you are in the session.  If you do not use your computer speakers, you will want to test this function prior to the session as well. If you have a microphone headset, you will be able to speak to ask questions. Otherwise, you can enter questions via the “Chat” window.  We will give directions on how to do this at the start of the session.  We will be speaking to participants as they log in, prior to the start of the formal session, to be sure that everyone can hear us.  If you sign in and do not hear anything for a number of minutes, please send us a note through the “Chat” window and we will respond. 


If you have any questions or specific topics you would like us to address in the webinars, please contact our office prior to February 27th at 518-474-6541 or at emscmgts@mail.nysed.gov. Thank you.
