Reminder: Collaborate Retiring August 2

This is a friendly reminder that on Saturday, August 2, UCSF faculty, staff and students will no longer be able to create or join Blackboard Collaborate web conference sessions, and all recorded Collaborate sessions will be deleted from the UCSF Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE).

As part of the CLE Refresh, Blackboard Collaborate will no longer be supported at UCSF. Read more in the June 11, Convergence blog post Collaborate Retiring on August 2. WebEx is the web conference system supported on campus by the TeleHealth department.
