Adobe Connect Pro (ACP) 9.5

Adobe Connect Pro is Syracuse University's supported web conferencing application that provides the delivery of real-time course lectures and meetings. Users only need a Flash-enabled web browser and an Internet connection to participate in these synchronous online sessions. Adobe Connect Pro allows the flexibility to deliver rich content, including streaming audio, video, and software demonstrations. Additionally, this Adobe Connect offers various collaboration tools that can be customized to facilitate various lecture, training, and meeting situations. Any content you upload into a meeting room content is automatically maintained for future sessions, which dramatically reduces preparation time. There is also a recording feature that allows later review and archiving of meetings.

In a typical web conference many tools can be available for participants, including audio, video, and real-time sharing of computer desktops, applications and documents by all participants. This enables more effective experiences than are possible with simple audio/video chats or conference calls. And, since web conferences use the internet and desktop computers, they are more widely accessible and much less costly than traditional video conferences, which require specialized equipment and dedicated facilities, and often lack collaboration tools.
