HINT - It's a good idea to log in before your session time to make sure that your computer is configured correctly. Some students have to download JAVA in order to run Wimba effectively.HINT - How to Help the Tutor See Your Paper Remotely on Your Desktop
When you log into Wimba and open your paper, a striped frame appears around your paper. You will need to drag the striped frame so that the frame is big enough to include the toolbar at the top of the paper. That way, the tutor can see and use the tools, such as highlighters, bolding, and colored fonts, as you discuss the paper together.
HINT - Also, it's a good idea to minimize that chat bar and place it to the side of the screen so that you and the tutor can see all of the paper and the toolbar.
