Enabling Guest Access to Wimba Classroom

Posted: Wednesday, October 1, 2008

Faculty who utilize the Wimba Classroom tool within Blackboard may want to invite a guest speaker to participate in a synchronous online session. It is possible to enable guest access to a Wimba Classroom so that a guest speaker can participate in a Wimba Classroom session without having an NIU AccountID or password. A new 4 minute tutorial highlights the steps to enabling guest access to a Wimba Classroom. The free QuickTime player is required to view the high resolution tutorial. It is also available on YouTube or as a podcast.
