Do I need an audio bridge with a web conference?

Printer-friendly version

Blackboard Collaborate uses Voice over IP (VOIP), which means all audio communication takes place over the Internet. The quality is good, the cost is free, and all you need is a headset and microphone. If you are experiencing technical difficulties, do not have a microphone with your speakers or headset, or prefer not to participate by talking,  the software also provides a chat window.
