This is inherently a difficult situation to address, so I’ll try to handle it as carefully as possible.  Last month, Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) in San Antonio, TX fell victim to a devastating fire which took out much of its technology infrastructure.  As a result, it’s been using our new Wimba Pronto ever since for much of its on-campus communication.  Obviously we don’t want to harp on this, but the good folks at OLLU have allowed us to tell their story, and earlier today The Chronicle of Higher Education wrote about it.  Additionally, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) was featured today in an article by Campus Technology Magazine about how it’s utilizing Wimba to conduct virtual disaster preparedness meetings among its 14 universities.  Obviously these are tough things to think about and prepare for.  While we certainly hope our customers and colleagues don’t have the same misfortune as OLLU, we do hope they have OLLU’s same relentless spirit!
