How do I secure  a Collaborate session?

The most secure way to join a Collaborate session is through a Learn Course. Sessions in a course require attendees to sign into the course to access the session. The Learning Management System (LMS) authenticates the user and creates a unique session link that helps each session identify the user. Each link is associated with an individual session and a specific user in that session. This means that the link only works for that user in that moment. The link to join session can't be used again or shared with another user. Session links expire after 5 minutes.

How do I restrict  access to my Collaborate sessions? 

Guest links are public links that anybody who has the link can use. For example, if you send the link to a student and they share the link, anybody they share the link with can join, and so on. If you want to keep your session secure, don't use guest links.
