Wimba Classroom ending as web conferencing tool

Thursday, November 20, 2014

University of Georgia instructors have until December 19 to download their archived Wimba Classroom Web conferencing sessions.

Wimba Classroom was replaced by Blackboard Collaborate in August as the Web conferencing tool for instructional purposes within eLearning Commons (eLC) and outside eLC as freestanding sessions. The company that supports Wimba Classroom will end support of the product at the end of 2014.

Instructors may find downloading instructions to download their recorded sessions prior to August 2014 on the CTL website. After December 19, the archived Wimba Classroom sessions will be no longer available.

Wimba Voice tools, including Voice Boards, Voice Podcaster and Voice Presentation, will remain available in eLC.

These services are jointly supported by the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) and Enterprise Information Technology Services (EITS).
