What's involved?

A web conference is a moderated, online, group event that is broadcast live to your PC, Mac or mobile device using Adobe Connect. Think of it as a mixture of video conferencing, presentation slides, and instant messaging with quizzes and videos thrown into the mix.

As of July 1 2015 Adobe Connect is the new provider of web conference services for The Department of Education and Training (prior to this we used Blackboard Collaborate).
