Adobe Connect Web Conferencing

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Faculty teaching online courses may be interested in getting setup with an Adobe Connect account for web conferencing with your students,  offered in collaboration with BC Campus. An instructor will be setup with an Adobe Connect account “room” that is accessible as a web link that can then also be embedded into a Moodle course.

Adobe Connect Web Conferencing allows you to:
Communicate
.    By voice or web camera with meeting participants
.    Allow participants to “chat” using a text chat function
.    Conduct online polls or surveys
.    Create “breakout groups” for small group discussion

Share
.    presentations ( .ppt, .pptx)
.    Adobe PDF ( .pdf)
.    video ( .swf, .flv)
.    audio ( .mp3)
.    images ( .jpg)
.    files of any type for downloading
.    your computer’s desktop or applications live
.    allow your meeting guests to share their applications — they
can even let you control their own applications

You can use it to:

  • Schedule online “real-time” course or workshop sessions
  • Hold online “office hours”
  • Bring expert guests into your classrooms from afar
  • Conduct meetings

You can try an online demo of the system at https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/adobeconnect/index.cfm?event=trial

More information about Adobe Connect can be found at http://www.adobe.com/ca/products/adobeconnect.html

Please send an email with your interest for setting up a room to tlc@ecuad.ca Documentation will then be provided for how to use the system and face to face meetings can be arranged for anyone living in Vancouver.

How do I get going with Adobe Connect?

What do you need to participate in an Adobe Connect meeting?
  • A computer with at least a broadband (DSL or Cable) connection
  • A computer with speakers or headset
  • A web browser
  • The URL of the meeting
  • Possibly a web camera or microphone
How do you “get to” an Adobe Connect meeting?
  • If you are the host of a meeting (instructor), you will have created a meeting space and given it a URL that you have designated for the meeting. Send this to your participants.
  • If you are a guest in a meeting, you should have received a URL via email or perhaps a link on a course page.
