On Thursday January 29 2009, I attended presentation about Wimba and its various features, functionalities, and uses, sponsored by Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT):
Adding Virtual Collaboration to Your Courses Using Wimba Classroom and Wimba Voice Tools
Wimba Voice is a web-based voice solution that facilitates and promotes vocal instruction, collaboration, coaching, and assessment. Wimba Classroom is currently being pilot tested for potential use by ISU instructors. All Wimba tools are fully integrated with the ISU WebCT
I Was Quite Impressed Not Only By The Reps But With The Wimba Technology Itself
From its inception almost a decade ago, Wimba has been solely focused on education and committed to harnessing the most powerful element of teaching—the human element—so that facial expressions, vocal intonations, hand gesticulation, real-time discussion, creativity and passion can be conveyed in the on-line learning environment.
The Wimba Collaboration Suite™ of products, which includes – the Wimba Classroom™ virtual learning environment, the Wimba Pronto™ academic messaging platform, the Wimba Voice™ audio tool, and the Wimba Create™ content authoring tool –enables institutions to bridge the gap between technology and pedagogy by supplementing course management systems with the proven disciplines of in-person learning environments.
