What is Adobe Connect? – Attending an Adobe Connect Meeting (for Students)
Hi, I’m Jeff Fazakerley with the Center for Instruction Innovation here at Brandman University. Welcome to our series on Attending an Adobe Connect Meeting. From time to time, you may be asked to meet online with your instructor and fellow students. We use Adobe Connect as the platform for these meetings.
Before we get started learning how to use Connect, I want to talk a little bit about what it is.
Adobe Connect is a web-based tool for presenting and collaborating, so you can instantly share and create content with others via the web.
The fact that it’s web-based is important because that means that you have a single web-address or URL that you can use to locate and attend your virtual classroom session online. Think of the URL as your virtual classroom number. When you type it into your web-browser you can attend your class online from anywhere, anytime on your pc, smartphone or tablet.
The Virtual Classroom comes with a variety of eLearning tools built into it that allow students to do things like create and present PowerPoints, navigate websites, take pop quizzes and instantly share documents via the web.
And because it allows your instructor to record, they can create archives of class meetings or pre- record lectures that they can post in your Blackboard course. So, think of Connect as a tool for leveraging the web for classroom collaboration and continue through this video series to learn how to access and actively participate in your virtual classroom sessions.
