Our campus now has a new way for you to meet, collaborate and share information with anyone from around the world from virtually any device. It’s called Adobe Connect and it allows you to share your computer screen; create whiteboards; use text, audio and video chat; and much more all through your web browser window. Since the service is provided as a common good (there’s no direct cost for using the service), it can replace paid alternatives like WebEx and GoToMeeting.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could incorporate web conferences in your Desire2Learn course? Well, now you can. The Online Rooms tool in Desire2Learn leverages Adobe Connect to bring web conferencing capabilities into D2L.
