Wimba Voice Direct

Wimba voice direct allows you to hold real time voice chats with members of your class. Only one person can talk at a time by using the "roving virtual microphone." This person can hold the microphone as long as he or she wants or until another person clicks on the hand(5) to indicate that they want to speak. When the person currently speaking finishes with the microphone by clicking on the red "x",(6) the system will automatically pass it on to the next person waiting in line for it. During the voice chat session users can also type to one another in the "chat room" text box.(2 and 3)
