Abstract

Speak in a language your students understand: use technology to transform your classroom into an interactive, student-driven, education-focused hotspot. WIMPi seamlessly combines Panopto's lecture capture software with i>clicker, whiteboard, and information management tools to create an access-enabling system that mitigates differences in learning style and student ability while reinforcing the classroom learning sphere by promoting access to course material anytime, anywhere. WIMPi's instructor-guided, student-centric approach uses a preclass content access model to promote classroom interaction and engagement, enhancing class-time productivity. Students take charge of their education, moving at their own pace and leveraging their own learning style.
