In 2014 the University of Waikato implemented Adobe Connect as the centrally supported web conference solution for web meetings, eLearning and webinars. Meetings are held online using your desktop or mobile device.
Faculty can use Adobe Connect to host synchronous class meetings online, hold office hours, bring in a guest speaker or connect with fellow researchers. Features include two-way audio and video conferencing, application and desktop sharing, an interactive whiteboard, audience polling, text chat, breakout rooms and more. All Adobe Connect sessions can be recorded and archived for playback and distribution.
Connect is integrated with Moodle which makes it easy for lecturers to create rooms that are automatically available to their students within Moodle as an activity. Users are automatically provided the correct access to the room based on your Moodle role.
The ITS Service Desk is the first point of contact for Connect assistance. WCEL offer regular workshops and support documentation is available online via the University Specific Support Site as well as the Adobe Support Site. Group workshops can be arranged as required, email the ITS Service Desk for further information.
