Now your instructors can create a more engaging and effective asynchronous environment by adding a voice authoring component (formerly Wimba Voice) that facilitates vocal instruction, collaboration, personalized coaching, and assessment. Easy podcasting allows instructors to create instant lectures and notes, while voice recordings provide thoughtful, quick feedback to students.
Voice discussion boards enable students to more thoroughly discuss meaning and content. Reaching beyond the traditional language laboratory environment, voice authoring supports traditional communicative styles of language learning by giving students multiple methods of speaking, writing, and listening to foreign languages—all online.
Blackboard Collaborate™ voice authoring capabilities incorporate threaded voice boards, voice-enabled email, embedded voice within course pages, as well as live group discussions and debates. Increase the interaction and student engagement level of any online course.
