Collaborate is a virtual classroom environment that allows faculty to present to dozens of students online. It includes screen sharing, video conferencing, recording, D2L integration, and live sessions. Collaborate is most commonly utilized within the Desire2Learn (D2L) learning environment through course shells. The tool can be access by clicking on the "People" drop-down menu on the navbar and selecting "Collaborate".

Collaborate Support

External Collaborate Accounts

External accounts can be used to access the Collaborate external site. These accounts are needed when Collaborate is being used outside of the virtual classroom, such as hosting an external workshop.

PSU faculty and staff can request a external Collaborate account by contacting the Helpdesk or using the Faculty Support Desk Request Form. Participants in Collaborate sessions do not need an account to join, they will simply click a hyperlink that is created for each session.
