Adobe Acrobat Connect is one of the leading web-konferencing platforms today. Connect vil soon be integrated in e-learn.sdu.dk (Blackboard), so that students as well as teachers vil get easy access to arranging and participating in on-line teaching or meetings
The many functionalities in Adobe Connect make it very useful for teaching, supervision, meetings etc.:
- Video and audio/speech from all participants
- Chat function
- File sharing
- Text editing in-group
- Screen sharing, i.e. an attendee can show/demonstrate functions outside of Connect, and allow another attendee to take over control of windows/applications or the entire computer.
- Recording of meeting sessions
- Presentations, for instance PowerPoint
The e-learning Support Center regularly conduct introductory workshops in Connect. With the needs and prerequisites of the participants as a starting point, the workshops contain a technical demonstration of Connect, incl. troubleshooting and tips&tricks. The large part of the workshop will be devoted to practical exercises and testing of Connect, combined with the exchange of inspiration and ideas on how to use Connect in different teaching scenarios.
All staff as well as students at SDU can access Connect via WAYF. That means that you no longer need to get a user account for Connect, clicking this link will give you access.
In order to be able to run Connect you need to install two small add-ins, FlashPlayer and Adobe Connect Add-in, on your computer. The first time you log into a Connect meeting room you will be automatically prompted to install the add-ins. If you are not the administrator of your pc you will need to contact your it-department so that they can carry out the installation of the add-ins.
