The University of Arizona Uses Adobe Connect to Promote Academic Achievement and Engagement

By finding more ways to deliver courses electronically, the University of Arizona (UA) broadens the reach of its educational opportunities. The UA currently offers nearly 70 undergraduate and graduate degree and certificate programs and its learning management system (LMS) holds more than 4,300 courses (15% of its total catalog) used by the university’s 19 colleges. To gain better mobile support, comply with regulations regarding eLearning accessibility for the disabled, and scale to support growing numbers of online students, the UA upgraded from a Java-based web-conferencing platform to Adobe Connect.

“We needed a synchronous online meeting tool to support both active learning and small-group work,” says Mark Felix, Director of Instructional Support, University of Arizona. “We also wanted a virtual classroom that could be customized. Adobe Connect offered these capabilities and more.”

Using Adobe Connect, instructors easily build custom eLearning courses that can be accessed from desktop or mobile devices. Instructors can deliver courses live online or as recorded lectures with interactive sessions using Adobe Connect. With apps from Adobe partner eSyncTraining and Adobe Connect, students can build online meetings, create their own study groups, and meet virtually with other students. In the first 15 months more than 30,000 users logged on and more than 3,000 hosts built more than 6,000 meeting rooms.
