Document Summary:




Document Details:

The Blackboard Collaborate Launcher is a utility for Windows and Mac users that provides a convenient and reliable way for you to launch your Blackboard Collaborate web conferencing sessions and recordings. When you click on a session or recording link, Blackboard Collaborate checks to see if you have the launcher installed and, if you don't, prompts you to download it. When you launch Blackboard Collaborate, the server sends you a .collab file, which the launcher processes using a known and stable version of Java that is provided in the launcher itself. Because the launcher includes the required Java, you no longer need to install and maintain the system version of Java.
