Benefits for Higher and Further Education

Benefits for K-12


Using a combination of special styles and dialog boxes, you can add interactive features such as:

• Flashcards

• Insert HTML, Java, and other code

• Navigation

• Table of contents

• Formatting

• Hyperlinks

• Popups

• Includes

• Definitions

• Self-test questions

• Windows Media, flash, and QuickTime movies

• Streaming audio and video

You don’t need any special knowledge to add these features, as you build them into your course using simple styles and dialog boxes that Wimba Create has added to the Word environment.

XML is a universal information exchange format, which means that your course material can easily be re-purposed in a variety of ways in the future.

When you export from Word using Wimba Create, the Wimba Create engine first changes the Word document into clean, simple XML, and then uses an XSL stylesheet to transform the XML into one of a variety of different elearning content formats.


Minimum Technical Requirements 

Windows XP, Windows Vista, Word 2003 or 2007.  Otherwise, there are no special technical requirements for Wimba Create, as you only need to meet the requirements of the version of Word you are using.
