The license for Blackboard Collaborate (previously known as Elluminate) expires on April 20, 2015.
Alternatively, Blackboard Collaborate users can now use Skype for Business for their communications and collaboration requirements. Skype for Business includes presence indicators, instant messaging, voice and video calls, as well as online meetings for up to 250 people. This new service is built right into the Microsoft Office Suite; this means that performing tasks such as initiating chats, voice and video calls and meetings are seamlessly integrated into the Microsoft Office experience. This also provides users with enterprise-grade security and compliance for information privacy and protection.
