Adobe Connect is a Web communication system that lets university faculty and staff present lectures and courses online and host collaborative meetings online. An optional plug-in, Adobe Presenter, can be used to enhance an Adobe Connect Web conference.
Use Adobe Connect to present and participate in real-time meetings and seminars. Meeting hosts can have interactive presentations that include PowerPoint slides, live and recorded video, Flash animations, live screen-sharing, audio, and two-way text chat. Participants can have real-time discussions using two-way text chat, and can brainstorm and collaborate using an online whiteboard, as well as application and desktop sharing.
Use Adobe Presenter, a plug-in that integrates with Microsoft PowerPoint on the Microsoft Windows operating system, to create Flash presentations that include narration, animation, video, interactivity, and quizzes. Presenter is especially helpful for creating self-paced courses, such as online training courses.
