English abstract

Wimba Classroom, like other online teaching tools, gives us a way to connect to our learners at a distance. This software can be used to share desktops, PowerPoint presentations, polls and more. Come and see a demonstration of the software and hear how we’re using Wimba Classroom to teach health care practitioners in a distance education program, undergraduate students in a first-year biology course and participants in an online RefWorks workshop. We’ll also talk about our “Train the Trainer” approach to building capacity among UBC librarians, and finish with a discussion of the uses of Wimba Classroom, as well as best practices for success in the online teaching environment. Participants will hear case studies of how Wimba Classroom has been used to host a variety of classes. Best practices will be highlighted.
