Application sharing best


practice
Read
and practice in your own time:

Use with caution requires higher bandwidth

Ensure your appshare settings are correct to cope with this as best as
possible

Make sure the application is running on your desktop before


launching

We recommend sharing specific application(s) rather than the


whole desktop

Ask your participants if they can see your application ok

Advise them they can scroll left, right, up & down, or scale to
fit

The Blackboard Collaborate left hand panel should remain on the


left of your screen

You should resize your application to fit the rest of the available
window space

File transfer

The file transfer tool allows you to load a file into the
Blackboard Collaborate session and send it to all the
participants.

Same as the multimedia function, Files should be kept


relatively small so as not to have any issues during the
Blackboard Collaborate session.

Once the file has been loaded, learners will receive a


prompt to save the file

You also have an option to hand out specific files at


different points in time

| Sep 2, 2015

See options in File Transfer Library.
