What is Adobe Connect?
Adobe Connect is a web-based communication tool that allows faculty and students to quickly and easily share presentations, desktop materials and other information over the Internet through a web conferencing interface. Adobe Connect has robust collaboration tools for discussion, whiteboard and text chat, and supports the use of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) audio as well as phone conference audio.
Before deciding to use Adobe Connect, consider your desired end result. It is always important to put your course strategies first and the course tool to help carry out those strategies second. You may find that certain objectives are more effectively carried out using another method of instruction (e.g., asynchronous discussion)
Adobe Connect requires that you dedicate time to plan and design learning activities, and will also require some student preparation. Allow yourself time to prepare and practice with the technology, and give your students time to do the same.
