Wimba is used to enrich language learning programs. This audio tool can be used for instructors to create assignments that require students to post their recordings from within the Blackboard course site. Instructors can use this tool to verbally explain complex material and send voice comments on papers and assignments. Wimba can also be used to teach pronunciation, rhythm, stress and emphasis.
