GPC Online Meetings

GPC's Online Meeting system utilizes a product called Wimba Classroom.  Wimba Classroom will allow meeting moderators/presenters and participants to:
  • Use their computer, internet connection, speakers, and microphone to communicate in a real-time environment.  Wimba Classroom also provides a dial-in number for meeting participants who are unable to use their computer to participate in the meeting.
  • Moderators/Presenters can use a PowerPoint presentation during their online meeting, share their own computer desktop with other participants, poll meeting participants, and chat with meeting participants. 
  • Leave cars in the parking lot!
