Adobe presented Acrobat Connect and we want it. Web-based interaction with an internet browser and the flash plug-in are smart. Video, audio, chat, desktop sharing, file upload, online presentations and session recordings are great. But two questions remain. What can we use it for? And will it meet our specific demands at the university? This impressive tool could be even better. We decided to act jointly: Adobe provides the system and we work out scenarios for higher education usage. University partners are from various departments: geography, psychology, pedagogy, business and dentistry etc. In teaching, learning and administration we can apply this system for: consultation-hours, holding/visiting lectures from abroad, training, support, involving external experts, etc. The conceptual work combined with the experiences, together with the knowledge of the software producer, leads to insights in how virtual classrooms can be used at universities and which features should be implemented in future releases.
