Adobe Connect

Adobe Connect has been deactivated as of July 10, 2015, because KU has new, more targeted technology tools that offer similar function and more benefits than Adobe Connect, including:

  • Blackboard Collaborate for synchronous online classroom and webinar sessions
  • Skype for Business for online collaboration outside of specific courses, including web conferencing
  • Lecture Capture for recording lectures in the classroom and at your computer
  • Kaltura for streaming media inside and outside of Blackboard

In evaluating Adobe Connect, we consulted with faculty and staff on the Technology Advisory and Blackboard Steering committees, and talked with frequent users of Adobe Connect to confirm that these new technology tools could fully replace Adobe Connect in meeting the varied needs on campus.
