Adobe Connect 8: Introduction
When & Where:
Tuesday, May 17, from 2:00pm to 3:30pm
IU's widely used conferencing tool will be upgraded to version 8 in early May, 2011. The new version will feature a new look plus enhanced audio and video.
The Office of Instructional Consulting is offering several opportunities to get help Adobe Connect 8 as the Summer semesters begin. In this session, we will primarily focus on synchronous or real-time communication and collaboration tools, provide general guidelines for hosting web conferences, and offer insight into the teacher as well as student experience.
Among several applications, we introduce you to Adobe Connect (formerly Macromedia Breeze), a web collaboration tool supported by Indiana University that provides a virtual classroom environment for sharing presentations, images, and desktop applications with remote participants/students. You can also take advantage of features like a digital whiteboard, text chat, polling, and audio/video communication.
