How can I improve my Wimba experience?
Use a headphone set with a microphone. That will filter out extraneous background noise in your environment and also allow you to verbally communicate with a Wimba instructor instead of being limited to text messaging. Watch this newsletter for an upcoming article on selecting a headphone for Wimba use.
