Grant Access to Collaborate Rooms in iCollege

Associated Service Collaborate

Overview

This document covers the various ways in which instructors can grant access to their Collaborate Sessions.

Requirements

Note: Collaborate sessions in iCollege 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 iCollege, or use a third-party phone bridge provider.
