The WGU Messenger
I thought I would spend a little time covering the WGU Messenger that is introduced during Education Without Boundaries (EWOB). The WGU Messenger is a instant message program that WGU recommends that students download while they are taking EWOB. I downloaded the application thinking that it was mandatory for completion of the course. However, I quickly found out that the program is not mandatory, and to my knowledge not used very much by students. I think the idea behind the program was to provide an instant message capability for students to keep in contact with each other, but I'm not sure if that is working for most folks. If anyone out there is using the program with success please let me know.
