Does everyone need a Blackboard Learn account to use Blackboard Collaborate?

Not all participants need a UIC Blackboard Learn account (UIC NetID) in order to participate in a Blackboard Collaborate session.  A Guest URL can be created for individuals who do not have a UIC NetID.

Once the conference session is created, the meeting link can be obtained by clicking "Allow Guests" under Room Attributes when a Web conference session is created.


The session will generate a link, which can be copied and pasted on an email message, anywhere on Blackboard, or on any Web page.
