Adobe Connect (Web-Conferencing)
Adobe Connect is the supported web-conferencing solution used at KUMC. Your instructor may use Adobe Connect to host virtual classroom meetings, as well as online office hours. Instructors may also use Adobe Connect to set up virtual meeting rooms for students to meet in groups to work collaboratively.
If your instructor has informed you that Adobe Connect will be used during the course, it is recommended that you purchase a headset to use during the Adobe Connect meetings. This will provide a better audio experience than using your computer's speakers and microphone.
It is very important that you familiarize yourself with the information below prior to attending an Adobe Connect meeting. This will ensure that you have a successful Adobe Connect experience.
How to Use
We have a KUMC Quick Start Guide to help you set up your computer and make sure you have everything you need to participate in an Adobe Connect session.
You can also download the Adobe Connect official Quick Start Guide for Participants (PDF) for more information.
Tips for Using Adobe Connect
- Double-check that your microphone headset is plugged in before you launch Adobe Connect.
- For best results, do not use mobile devices and use Firefox for your browser.
- At least 30 minutes before your session, complete the KUMC Quick Start Guide to ensure that you are able to connect to the session and that your microphone is working properly.
