Wimba Classroom

What is Wimba Classroom

Wimba Classroom allows staff to deliver and record any live session to students. It combines Powerpoint, audio and/or video and an online chat area. It is most typically used to deliver an online lecture and discussion. This is ideal for staff on distance or blended learning programmes, but it could be used to create materials or support learning in campus based courses. It could also be used a variety of situations such as holding virtual meetings.

How is it done?

  • The lecturer and students log on to Blackboard at a given time.
  • The lecturer creates a new instance of the Wimba Classroom, and students join that session.
  • The lecturer can then choose to allow students to ask questions or even work in groups.
  • The sessions can be broadcast using audio, or audio and video.
  • The session can be recorded and archived.
