  • If you cannot access the Blackboard/Collaborate classroom, you will need to:
    1. Download the newest version of Java to see and hear lessons. This is a free download. Access and download it here: Java.
    2. Try opening the room in a different internet browser.
    3. Now, visit the link for the lesson under More Details (in the calendar appointment) and RSVP to the instructor that you will be attending this   lesson! **You must RSVP for the particular lesson(s) that you plan on attending.
    4. On the day of the lesson, sign into the class link (within the appointment) 10-15 minutes early!
    5. While in the classroom, if you have a question RAISE YOUR HAND so your instructor recognizes you while she/he presents (just like in a physical classroom).
