Have you thought about putting academic course material in WebCT Vista, but do not have the time to learn to use an HTML editor? Are you a trainer who would like to convert training manuals from Microsoft Word into web-ready interactive content without having to learn another program?
The University has purchased a site license for Horizon Wimba's Course Genie, a software tool that enables you to convert Word documents into a set of web pages (HTML) files - complete with navigation buttons and a table of contents. Clip art, tables, links to external websites, and links to files will convert neatly into a learning package ready for import into Vista 3.0. Course Genie offers additional export options for Moodle and standalone Web sites.

Course Genie is so easy to use that extensive training is not necessary. However, Horizon Wimba offers live training through their Desktop Lecture series. The webinars are free and if you're not able to attend, archived sessions are available. Visit http://www.horizonwimba.com/community/upcoming.php to view session availability or to listen to an archived lecture.
