Each unit there will be an audio quiz in which you will be submiting a voice email to your instructor as an evaluation of your spoken skills in Russian. The voice emails are sent from the Blackboard site using the Wimba Voice Email software which is built in to Blackboard. All you need to complete the assignment is a microphone. NOTE: WIMBA LOADS SLOW THE FIRST TIME IT IS USED ON A COMPUTER. Have patience when a Wimba-enabled page opens up.
If you are using Windows Vista and you are experiencing problems being able to send voice emails, please see the student tutorial online for using Wimba to send voice emails in Blackboard.
