Adobe Connect is a web conferencing system that allows individuals to meet online in a synchronous manner. The University of Ottawa's current access to Adobe Connect is limited. Accordingly, the university has made arrangements with Contact North to provide access to Adobe Connect for all faculty and students at the university.
Adobe Connect Meeting - a Guided Tour
There are Adobe Connect Web conferencing Introduction, Instructor, and Expert sessions available as on-demand webinars. For more information on these sessions please visit our Adobe Connect Meeting Training Schedule. These recorded sessions are available in both English and French. We strongly recommend that you watch at least a session on the basics of Adobe Connect. Contact North will be adding a few short topic-specific webinars to the list of options, as well as a number of live Q&A sessions for faculty and instructors who have attended the webinars. You do not have to attend an entire session but it is strongly recommended.
An Adobe Connect account will be created for anyone who fills out the form below, or for anyone who registers for an Adobe Connect webinar.
