Resources Inside Blackboard

  • Adobe Connect - web meeting software

    Adobe Connect is a web conferencing tool that offers a lot more flexibility and features than the Groups tools and Collaboration tools. This technology allows faculty and students to hold live-synchronous, online meetings in a variety of layouts and formats. Adobe Connect enables multiple users (attendees) to share files or computer screens, chat, broadcast live audio and video, and participate in interactive online activities.

    This tool is ideal for both lectures and projects that require more flexibility than the previously mentioned tools. Adobe Connect can also be used for individual or group presentations because of its extreme flexibility and the ability to record sessions.
