Adobe Connect

Adobe Connect is a robust video conferencing application that allows distance learning classes to have a virtual live classroom space. Courses using Adobe Connect can leverage engaging video, audio and interactive content online. There are no additional accounts required to use Adobe Connect; every University of Kentucky student has access to the system via their Link Blue account. Individual courses will have a specific link provided to students by their instructors to join the class.

Regular training sessions are offered for students to familiarize themselves with Adobe Connect once a week. These training sessions are held online via Adobe Connect for a more hands on approach and students should feel free to visit these sessions any time during the two hour block to tailor their training needs. The following is the calendar for available training.
