What is Collaborate@Lunch?
Collaborate@Lunch (formerly Elluminate) takes place in a web conferencing tool called Blackboard Collaborate. They are scheduled from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm and serve as a virtual brown bag session.

At a minimum faculty will need a computer with speakers to listen to the presenters. Questions can be posted in a chat window. ATC recommends that faculty purchase a headset with microphone (they can be purchased for about $20) if they intend to hold sessions for their students in Collaborate.
