UPDATE: Gallery view is now available! Learn more in this FAQ.
Spring will bring warm weather to the UMBC campus community… and an exciting update for our web conferencing tool, Collaborate! The first phase of increased video thumbnails is tentatively targeted for April 8, 2021, allowing moderators to see up to 25 videos per page.
Three options will be available:
The Gallery View displays up to 25 videos per page. The zoom function reduces the videos displayed. Up to 250 videos can be supported in a session using pagination to display the thumbnails.
The Speaker View centers the lead speaker on the screen with 7-8 video thumbnails tiled at the bottom.
The Tile View places the speaker on the left with 11-12 video thumbnails on the right.
- Session owners can tell at-a-glance if the recording is available to the public or to course members only.
- Some Collaborate error pages will provide chatbot support to attendees. The chatbot is also available on the Report an Issue panel.
