Wimba Pronto is is an academic-centric instant messaging platform designed to bring informal learning settings online. One of the main differences between Wimba Pronto Basic and other instant messaging programs is that Wimba Pronto Basic is synchronized with your institution's Course Management System (CMS). This means that students and teachers are automatically connected with other Wimba Pronto users enrolled in the same courses.
