This session explores what sets the Wimba Collaboration Suite apart as a cost-effective solution to the challenges many universities face. Perhaps your university or college wants to repersonalise the student experience, or to develop vibrant, international research networks and communities? Are you looking for a means to ensure continuity or to deliver your programmes during the swine flu pandemic or for other contingencies? Maybe you want to reduce the time staff spend travelling between campuses and to reduce your institution's carbon footprint? Or are you looking to reach out more effectively to employers and to other stakeholders in your region? Wimba is unique in offering a joined-up approach to these challenges, and this sets us apart from other providers. In this session you will learn about the Wimba Collaboration Suite 6.0 of products and how you can add the power of collaboration to your provision, taking learning beyond the physical classroom and the virtual learning environment too. The Wimba Collaboration Suite, which was voted Best Education Solution 2009, SIIA CODiE Award supports active and collaborative learning communities and can significantly enhance the quality of the student experience, wherever it occurs, helping to avoid isolation for on-campus students as well as those studying at a distance. By combining interactive technologies students and teachers are empowered with a unique collaborative environment that can enhance learning, improve outcomes, and increase student retention.
