Adobe Connect

Adobe Connect is a tool for desktop sharing, online meetings and video conferences. Combined with a tablet it can be used as a digital board. DTU has free access to Adobe Connect through The Danish e-Infrastructure Cooperation.

 

Description

There are two different main user scenarios for Adobe Connect.

  • Streaming lectures (and - if desired - recording and distributing them for later use). With Adobe Connect you can share the desktop (or selected parts of it) when demonstrating e.g. software. The audience can write comments through a chat function.
  • Streaming online meetings (and - if desired - recording and distributing them for later use). Adobe Connect can support some forms of distributed collaboration between members of a meeting, e.g. taking turns in the online discussion, chat comments, and sharing desktop workspace.

For help and suggestions regarding the different ways of using of Adobe Connect (lectures, meetings etc.) contact the e-learning consultants at LearningLab DTU.
