Adobe Connect

One of the features of our online program is the ability to have live class sessions with your instructor. The web conferencing platform we use for this is Adobe Connect. Adobe Connect allows you to participate in lectures and discussions in real time like you would in a face to face classroom. While we encourage you to participate in these sessions while they are occurring live, they can also be recorded for viewing at a later date.

Adobe Connect is a free online tool to our students as participants in class. It works on any computer where you have high speed internet access. Students can also participate on their iPhone or Android device using the free Adobe Connect apps available online.

Students should download the Adobe Connect add-in to maximize their learning experience. Follow the how-to participate instructions for getting started.

In some online programs, tuition includes your textbooks, eliminating the unknown book expense most students encounter at the beginning of each term. When physical textbooks are used, online students will receive their textbooks at their home prior to the beginning of each class. When e-books are used, online students will receive access links and instructions within their course on D2L. Students should check with Admissions to determine if their course or program includes textbooks.
