Adobe Connect can be used to deliver lectures at a distance. Instructors who are out-of-town can deliver a class online to their students. If they teach in a computer equipped classroom, they can also bring in guest speakers to talk to their students, using a headset/microphone and a web cam. Some instructors use these live meeting sessions as virtual office hours to answer students’ questions.
All Connect sessions can be recorded easily and instructors can make the links available to those students who weren’t able to attend the session. With the newest release, Connect also offers breakout rooms, the editing and downloading of recordings, and additional options for managing access and entry.
