Adobe Connect® is a tool that allows classes to meet, communicate, and view presentations in a real-time online environment. Sessions can be recorded so that students who cannot attend the live session can still benefit from viewing the session at a later time.
Students and instructors may attend Connect sessions from any location, using any computer. All that is required is an internet connection. No special software is needed to attend a Connect session.
Popular uses of Adobe Connect at Texas State University include meetings for online courses, student collaborative projects and virtual office hours.
Due to increased demand, Connect rooms can only be created for scheduled Texas State academic classes by the instructor of record.
Non-Class uses for Connect Rooms cannot currently be accommodated. Lecture recording for online viewing can be accomplished via Camtasia Relay.
Adobe Connect 9 has been rolled out for use this semester. There haven't been many changes to the interface or the usage of the service, so if you've used it previously, everything will still be familiar. Nearly all the changes were improvements on the back end.
It has become more important to ensure that you have the basic requirements for Adobe Connect. Before you join a room:
The Add-In is optional. Students are unlikely to need it and professors will only need it if they intend to do screen sharing.
If you've performed these steps and have any issues then entering an Adobe Connect room, contact ETC Support.
