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.
Available for Faculty, Staff and Graduate Research & Teaching Assistants at no additional cost.
All KU faculty, staff, GTAs and GRAs can use their KU Online ID and password to log in to desktopconnect.ku.edu and create a virtual room. KU students as well as colleagues and researchers from around the world can be invited to participate in an online meeting or conference, but cannot create virtual meetings.
Adobe Connect can be accessed from any computer with a web browser and an Internet connection.
Some support is available through the KU Information Technology Customer Service Center.
