Before the start of the fall 2013 semester, Blackboard will turn off access to the Wimba servers. Wimba will be unavailable thereafter, during the fall 2013 semester and beyond.
Collaborate is the tool Blackboard built as a replacement for Wimba. Collaborate provides functionality similar to that Wimba, improved audio & video quality, an updated look-and-feel, and modern features such as support for mobile devices.
Existing session archives stored in Wimba will not be copied over to, or be available from within, Collaborate. If you wish to preserve any sessions you have archived in Wimba, please export them before the start of the fall semester.
For Collaborate training, please see the training registration page.
If you have other needs or questions, please contact the IT Help Center.
