Please note that the name of this group has changed to reflect the change of name from elluminate to Blackboard Collaborate. I hope this will not confuse the members of this group. Have you tried the new look room. Do you want to be coached in the use of the new style room? If so, leave a comment on this page and I shall contact you back.
