Adobe Connect, provided by Funet Tiimi, is an online conferencing system that helps to connect Metropolia employees in different campuses with each other. By arranging online meetings we can avoid unnecessary travelling and take care of the environment and be economical.
Adobe Connect is an easy to use application that does not require any installation from the user. All that is needed is a link to the host’s AC room. In the AC room participants communicate with each other using microphones, webcams, and chat. None of the above is necessary, though, since students can just as well simply listen and watch when a teacher gives a lecture. During a meeting or a lecture the participants can collaborate on writing a document and share e.g. a PowerPoint presentation or a browser window.
