What’s New?
In the Collaborate 18.2 release, the developer updates were focused on academic effectiveness and learner engagement, with four new features:

  • Moderators can distribute anonymous phone-only, dial-in instructions;
  • Moderators can edit recording names;
  • All users will experience bandwidth improvements (better quality) when viewing Application Sharing; and,
  • All users can now access Settings, Feedback & Status from their avatar in the tools area.

How Can I Use These New Features?
