At ACU you can use the following tools in LEO to communicate with your students in real-time.

Adobe ConnectAdobe Connect Live Classrooms

Adobe Connect is used at ACU to run online meetings, presentations and webinars, and as virtual teaching space for online units. It allows real-time communication through video and audio over the internet for multiple users, while also providing several interactive features, such as:

  • Screen sharing, application sharing, and interactive whiteboards
  • Breakout rooms for group discussions
  • Tools such as text chat, file sharing, and instant polling, plus many more.

Lecturers can also record their sessions and provide these for students to view later. Using the LTI activity, students can even create their own meeting rooms to use as study groups.

Learn more about Adobe Connect Live Classrooms in the Tools section of the LEO Guides.

ChatThe Chat activity

Chat is a simple text-based chat room tool that can be added to your LEO unit, which allows you to communicate with your students in real-time via instant messaging.

The functions provided by this activity are much simpler than those of a live classroom, and can be used where a synchronous solution is preferable to other asynchronous LEO activities.

Learn more about the Chat activity in the Tools section of the LEO Guides.
