Adobe Connect

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.

Adobe Connect

Use Adobe Connect to present and participate in real-time meetings, trainings, events 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, can brainstorm and collaborate using an online whiteboard, as well as share desktops and applications.

Adobe Connect meetings, trainings, events and seminars can be created and attended on Macintosh/Windows desktops, laptops, and mobile devices. Mobile device support includes Apple IOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad), Android devices (selected smartphones and tablets) and Blackberry Playbook.

Adobe Presenter

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.
