What is a COLLAB file?

COLLAB files are created by the Collaborate software, which was developed by Blackboard Inc. A .collab file is automatically created and saved in a default local download directory after the Launcher applet of this software has been installed in the user's computer.This program is an online learning tool that was designed to facilitate online learning and collaboration projects. Students can use the Collaborate software to access various online conference tools, Web collaboration interfaces and Internet learning applets that are available in this application.The .collab file format is used by the Collaborate software to create data files that may contain recorded user information about Web collaboration projects, online conference details and access logs to this software's Internet learning tools among other things that have been performed by the user with the Collaborate program. These .collab files are saved by the Collaborate software in local data storage devices and are not meant to be manually opened. It's best to leave these .collab files alone so as to ensure that the Collaborate software will continue to work properly in the user's computer.
