How to access sessions via a mobile device, for staff and students.
You no longer need an app to run Collaborate on your mobile device. If you click on a link to a session it will open in your browser on your mobile device.
Supported devices and browsers
- Android: Chrome browser
- iOS 11+: Safari browser
Blackboard Learn App
If you access your Collaborate sessions via Learn, then it may be useful to download the Blackboard Learn app as this will help launch a Collaborate session if the link is provided within your Learn course.
Blackboard Learn app is available for devices running iOS 11+ or Android 6+
Moderating on a mobile device
It is possible to moderate a session on your mobile device, but you will only have access to a limited subset of tools – e.g. application sharing is not available on mobile devices. It is therefore recommended that you use the browser view of Collaborate on a laptop or PC for the full range of moderator capabilities.
