Wimba Voice 6.0

Give Students a Voice

Wimba Voice 6.0 is a web-based voice solution that facilitates and promotes vocal instruction, collaboration, coaching, and assessment.

Reaching beyond the traditional language laboratory environment, Wimba Voice supports traditional communicative styles of language learning by giving students multiple methods of speaking, writing, and listening to foreign languages – all online.

Wimba Voice incorporates the use of threaded voice boards, voice-enabled email, embedded voice within course pages, as well as live group discussions and debates, which increase the interaction and student engagement level of any online course.

The new 6.0 release of Wimba Voice allows instructors to not only grade a voice discussion board from within Wimba Voice but to automatically add these evaluations to the CMS gradebook.

To dig deeper consider the features, benefits, requirements, and Licensing Information of Wimba Voice.
