Live Sessions

The LaunchPad Live!

The LaunchPad Live! sessions are casual drop in Question and Answer sessions hosted online via Blackboard Collaborate. Not only will you get a chance to try out the Collaborate technology, you'll also be able to connect with other new students and Student Services staff members in order to get your questions answered.

Each interactive session will last about half an hour and is designed to be drop in, so please stay for as short or as long as you like. Collaborate allows you to either participate using a mic and headphones (like Skype) or to ask questions over a chat function. You will require speakers or headphones for the session.

Please note, we are not able to provide program specific information during The LaunchPad Live! sessions, however, we will be able to refer you to the right person to get your questions answered.

To log into The LaunchPad Live! session, simply click on the day/time you'd like to participate, type your name into the session log in page and click “join session”. Please note that this online space ("room") will only be attended during posted session times, however you will be able to view the "room" at any point.

For more information on Blackboard Collaborate, or for technical assistance, please visit the Collaborate support page.
