Collaborate Current Service Status
Use the NPS Collaborate Test Session at any time to test your connection to a Collaborate Session. Instructions and troubleshooting for various operating systems are below.
Sessions can ONLY be created using Sakai. NPS Staff and Faculty can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a Sakai site which they can use to create sessions.
Once sessions are created, participants do not need to be enrolled in the course site to join. Session creators will get a Guest Link which they can email to desired participants.
The Sakai Collaborate Interface detects your location so any dates/times specified will be in your timezone. Dates/Times will be adjusted for others in their own time zones.
Download the Powerpoint file used in the training.
If your NPS groups will like a live training session, please contact email@example.com to submit a request.
