Wimba Connect 2008 was an exciting and engaging experience! This was a highly-focused event where practitioners learned about innovative and meaningful ways in which myriad colleagues use (and plan to expand and extend the use of) the Wimba Suite of tools. Doubtless this inaugural event was the first of many for Wimba and its leading-edge user community - and we certainly look forward to Wimba Connect 2009!
