Web conferencing allows people to meet and share presentation materials over the internet in real time. You and your group can be located around the province and collaborate easily without needing to travel. Participants meet in dedicated online conference rooms where they are able to communicate by audio and video, and share files in real-time. Web conferencing can be done by computer or mobile device, and a telephone or headset with microphone.
Adobe Connect is the Faculty of Medicine’s web conferencing technology. It’s easy-to-use and addresses a full range of online meeting needs, from simple screen sharing to real-time collaboration using a shared whiteboard. The URL that you access for your web conference (e.g. meetingfomubc.adobeconnect.com) serves as an online conference room. This URL allows you to re-enter and access your password-protected meeting space to share and review meeting notes.
Adobe Connect allows you to hold meetings at a moment’s notice and save meeting rooms—including notes, chat and whiteboard—to a permanent URL. Your meeting URL requires a login and password, so your meeting content will remain private and secure.
