Note: When you enter a Blackboard conference, both your camera and microphone will be off.  It is necessary to enable each of them (look at bottom of screen for controls).

Online meeting etiquette

  • Mute your microphone when you are not speaking.
  • Use the “hands up” feature of the conferencing software – that’s what it’s there for.
  • Minimize background noises (radio, music, etc – though children and pets are sometimes not so easy to manage, but do your best).
