Guide to Using Class - Virtual Conferencing

What is Class?

Class is a virtual classroom you can access in your course within Blackboard. 

Tips to using Class

  • You can use it on Windows, Mac, Chromebook, iPad, or Mobile.
  • Chromebook and Mobile users must join from the Web App.
  • The Class Web App must be launched in Chrome or Edge.  It will not work in Firefox, Safari, or any other Web Browser.
  • For a better experience, try to minimize the number of tabs you have open when using Class. 

How to Access Class

From your Blackboard course, look for the Class Video Conferencing link found in Blackboard Tools and click on it. Your instructor may have it linked in your class.
