The Webex Education Connector's Classroom Collaboration is an integration tool that allows you to utilize functions of the Webex application (formerly 'Webex Teams') within your course LMS site.
In order to use 'Classroom Collaboration,' you must first Enable Webex in your LMS Course and activate "Classroom Collaboration".
- Classroom Collaboration is not recommended for class lectures where there are more than 20 students.
- Do not access the Classroom Collaboration feature before you have clicked Authorize in settings. Doing so will cause an error and may take time to correct. ('Authorize' only needs to be done in one course--the system will automatically authorize across all your courses when the step is completed.)
- Please note that 'Classroom Collaboration' creates a 'Team' based on course enrollment--manipulation should not be started before students are entered via the Registrar automation.
- Do not Archive or leave your course team once you’ve created it. Doing so will cause a fatal error for Classroom Collaboration.
Once Classroom Collaboration has been activated, you must create all Spaces you want the students to work in via the LMS. Spaces created outside the LMS (i.e. via the desktop application) will not populate the Team in Blackboard.
After you have made the Spaces needed, you can use the desktop application to interact with the other members of the Team and all other features/options are available.
