Adobe Connect@Hunter College
Adobe Connect is a web-based communications tool that allows users to meet, share and collaborate virtually from their desktops. One of the advantages of this system is that there are few technical requirements to use the tool. All you need is a standard web browser and speakers. (A web camera and microphone are optional.) A PC or Mac computer can be used to access the virtual meeting.
Please Note: ICIT piloted the Adobe Connect Pro software with a small number of classes and administrative users during the 2008-2009 academic year. We are now extending the availability of this licensed tool to a limited number of new users. See below to get started.

What if the majority of my students are on campus in a traditional classroom and only a few of my students will be using Adobe Connect?
If the majority of your class will meet face to face on campus and you only have a few students who will be participants through Adobe Connect, you may be interested in teaching your course from one of our videoconferencing facilities. A larger facility is located at the 119th Street School of Social Work campus and a smaller, 22 seat room is on the C level of the North building at the 68th Street campus. Choose the size of facility that is right for your class. Teaching your course from one of these locations allows for large screen displays and audio interactivity between you, your remote and on-campus students while our trained technical support staff is on-hand to assist you. If you are interested in scheduling your course in one of these facilities, contact us at (212) 396-6347 or email email@example.com.
