How to Use BB Collaborate to Support Your Team
Adding a Short Note as an Introduction
Unlike Zoom, BB Collaborate does not offer an opportunity to change one’s background. As an alternative, you can share your screen for the first 10 minutes of a tutorial, for example 15:00-15:10, and then stop the screen share when the tutorial starts proper.
Example of a Short Note
“CUPE 3902 is the Union that represents the interests of Teaching Assistants at UofT. CUPE 3902 fights to make sure that we work under fair conditions. Our working rights are laid out in a document called a Collective Agreement. This gets renegotiated every three years, and we are in the middle of negotiations for a new Collective Agreement now! What do we want? A fair living wage, transparent hiring practices, improved mental health services, and clear job duties. Basically, if our working conditions improve, this means a better classroom environment for you! If you have any questions, I will be around at the end of class”
