Reflection: Using Adobe Connect

Adobe Connect is a great technology for teachers and students to connect in a virtual classroom environment over the internet. As part of the Digital Learning Technology class at EIT I have taken advantage of connecting to this virtual classroom.

Most of the benefits of a traditional classroom can still be enjoyed – like viewing and commenting on class lecture content. However, without class members in the traditional classroom using mics or typing in what they were saying, comments and questions from the audience are usually not picked up, so you can’t comment on or think about the audience contributions missed. Comments written into Adobe Connect by virtual participants can sometimes be missed. Also, it pays to use a setup with a working mic when part of the virtual audience, to be able to participate more fully (the first few times I was in the Virtual audience my mic wasn’t working on my PC, so I tried my laptop which worked fine).
