Students should access your Collaborate session by using the Join button for either the Course Room or the session you create. You should NOT give students the guest link, which is a public link that can be shared with anyone outside of Blackboard. The guest link is intended for guests – a speaker, for example. If you share the guest link with students, it can be shared with anyone – including disruptive participants.
