Ready for a Live Online Classroom Experience?
We are now offering live online classes using the award winning Collaboration Suite called Wimba! This suite of tools allows us to offer online live classes using a robust set of tools to create a virtual classroom.
The design and ease-of-use of this suite of tools ensures that faculty and students engage as if they were meeting face-to-face. Tools such as polling, white boarding, presenter-on-the-fly, resizable chat areas and participant lists, usage analytics tools, and MP3/MP4 downloads of archives sessions enable further dynamic interaction between students and faculty.
