Like all synchronous online meeting platforms, Blackboard Collaborate runs using Java. Given security vulnerabilities, most systems require users to explicitly give permission each time Java is opened. The following link walks users through installing Java and giving it permission to run: https://sas.elluminate.com/site/internal/installinfo/user. Some universities set their firewalls to block Java applets. If you receive error messages in the process of installing, please contact your local IT personnel.
