To maintain the highest continuity of service possible during COVID-19, Blackboard disabled certain non-essential features in Collaborate that can impact overall system stability. These features are:
- Timer (a countdown timer that helps with classroom time management)
- Chat typing indicator (a visual indicator that someone is typing but have not yet completed their thought. The chat feature itself will still be available.)
- Netstats indicator (a visual indicator of connection quality next to each user)
