This short video tutorial created by the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) will help you understand how to properly set up your computer to participate in PolarConnect (formerly Live from IPY!) events, CARE seminars, and other interactive web seminars and presentations using the Wimba program.
Wimba is an internet based virtual classroom that enables live audio web-conferencing, online presentations, polling, and private and public text chat. Wimba is easy to set up and use, and it’s flexibility allows classrooms and individual to participate in ways that best fit their technological capabilities. There is no cost associated with participating in ARCUS's live events and no software will be downloaded to your computer.
