Aha! to share: The whiteboard is a great space to use to encourage participation. I never had an instructor use the whiteboard area in a collaborative fashion before!

Questions to ask yourself:
  • What barriers do I have to synchronous learning?
  • How can I overcome those barriers when I'm learning and when I'm teaching?
Rating: 3 stars; There was nothing terribly wrong with the course but the topic is something that I'm fairly familiar with and would have preferred to participate in an asynchronous course in order to get up to speed with Wimba.

Additional notes: I made a contact with Trina Panagos at Frederick County Public Library and we are hoping to work on a synchronous training project involving Google Wave in the future.
