Wimba Voice Tools
During the remainder of 2012, Auburn University is moving its classes off Blackboard into Canvas -- but this takes time, and as quite f ew of our classes are relying on the Wimba Voice Tools for assignments, announcements, and other recorded communications, Auburn University has extended the license for the Wimba Voice Tools for one more year.
During this time, faculty who are still using blackboard, will be able to keep using the Voice Tools; however, once a class has been moved over to Canvas, its internal recording functionality will make Wimba less important. In addition, please remember that the Wimba tool not renewed is the Live Classroom, which allowed for synchronous online class meetings. If you need this functionality, try out the conference tool inside Canvas (the Big Blue Button), connect through Canvas with Skype, or use Adobe Connect.Content release date: Tuesday, March 20, 2012
