Create a New Collaborate Room in Desire2Learn

Overview

This post shows you how to create a new Collaborate room that is integrated with Desire2Learn. When you use this method to create a Collaborate room, access to your room is automatically limited to participants in your existing Desire2Learn course and sign-in is limited to course participants.

Note: Collaborate sessions in Desire2Learn require that participants have a microphone attached to their computer to participate in voice chat. To set up the option to dial in to a meeting by telephone, you would need to request a stand-alone session, instead of creating a meeting in Desire2Learn, or use a third-party phone bridge provider.
