Received an overview, observed a demo, and learned what’s new with Bb Collaborate 12.5 Mobile, Web Conferencing and LMS Integration. It’s available on Android! (Kindle too, but not Nook?). Audio echo cancellation was added last year, so no need for external headsets! This was an issue with a previous version I tested. There are easy to access online and offline Mp4 and Mp3 formats within the LMS. Customization of a schedule session is easier too. JAWS 14 support.
