I know that there are many other options to Collaborate, but I really can't imagine not having it available. I should confess that my school was an early adopter of the Wimba products before that company was purchased by Blackboard, so we now have been using this tool for a very long time. Since the Ultra upgrade, though, I have become even more of an evangelist for this tool to all of our faculty. It is so intuitive, robust, and reliable for us.
I was also an any adopter of Wimba back (I still have a place in my heart for the old Wimba app) in my prior work at UMass Boston the initial BbC product has drastically changed over the years so I hear you about becoming a later adopter of BbC Ultra in time as a tool option.
But Toni Pennacchia, do you still have your Wimba flip flops? Now that was a give-away, eh?
