Even smaller update

Wimba Pronto is the coolest thing ever.

Chats, private messages, virtual office hours, shared whiteboards, video chat, "AppShare" (showing others your computer and the applications you are running)...Totally awesome.

I especially like this because it can help you show a student around a website, around Blackboard, around Microsoft Word, etc. Especially as a literature teacher with students who may not know how to change settings for document writers (margins, weird paragraph spacing, etc - THANK YOU SO MUCH, MICROSOFT, FOR YOUR WEIRD DEFAULTS IN WORD 2007 AND LATER), this is the best thing ever.
