Pronto: Horizon Wimba.
Students and instructors can spontaneously meet live online at any time to discuss their coursework using this free instant messaging and voice chat tool. Features include instant messaging, voice over IP audio, and group IM and VoIP. The software integrates with Blackboard or WebCT so contact lists automatically populate according to class rosters, and teachers and T.A.s display differently for ease of identification. The software is currently available for prerelease clients and will be available to all educational institutions for free in fall 2006. Schools interested in reserving their free campus-wide license can sign up today at www.horizonwimba. corn/products/pronto.
