Wimba Voice Tools

2008-2009

Wimba Voice Tools were piloted to allow instructors to integrate live audio recording and playback functionality into almost all areas of their Blackboard courses, including announcements, quizzes or surveys, or content areas.  In Fall 2008, at least 49 course sections of 19 different courses made use of Wimba for web-based audio recording and playback.  In 2009, funding for Wimba Voice Tools in Blackboard was included in the CIT operational budget along with other Blackboard-related expenses, and funding continued to be provided for Wimba in Sakai through fall 2013 when VoiceThread replaced Wimba.
