Adobe Connect Guide

Adobe Connect is used for all synchronous web conference course meetings and allows two or more users to collaborate in real time over the Internet. Participants in Adobe Connect meetings are able to utilize the following features:

  • real-time video
  • integrated voice-over-IP (VOIP) audio

  • document sharing
  • collaborative editing
  • polling
  • meeting recording

During Orientation we will go over how to use Adobe Connect. In addition, you are required to attend an Adobe Connect remote training session on Tuesday, August 26 at 12:00 pm ET. Please mark your calendar. The session should not take longer than 15-20 minutes.

Each webconference will be recorded for future review and for students who are unable to attend a particular meeting. The link to the recording will typically be located on the Sakai course site. It is expected that you will attend each webconference unless there are extenuating circumstances. Absences should be discussed with your faculty.
