These instructions assume you have already logged in to D2L and entered the course in which you wish to work.

You may only enter a Collaborate room early, in advance of that room's start date and time, to the extent allowed by the room's "Early Room Entry" setting.

You can upload presentations or other files prior to the start time. The files will persist until they are deleted.
