UNO faculty and staff that have heard of Adobe Connect but do not currently use it can arrange a hands-on demo of the software by contacting the Academic Partnership for Instruction group within UNO IS. To do so, simply call the IS Helpdesk at 554-4357 and they will connect you with the API staff that can assist you.
Those interested in trying Adobe Connect Pro 9.0, the system used by 'unconnect', can download a 'thirty day' free trial of the software here: Connect Trial Download.
The 'Pro' version of Adobe Connect,used by the 'unoconnect' academic portal, provides the opportunity for faculty and staff to collaborate with up to 100 people. Connect Pro meetings can also be recorded for playback 24/7, and instructional materials added to online classes or meetings persist for the next meeting unless removed by the instructor or host.
In addition to hands-on demos, the IS Academic Partnership for Instruction (API) holds one or two 'Brownbags' each year on the use of 'unoconnect' for instruction, on-line advising, and web conferencing.

Dates and times for upcoming brownbags,classes, and tech-talks are listed on the API site (http://api.unomaha.edu) and announced prior to the date of the event in enotes'. If no Adobe Connect events are listed when you visit the API site, please check back as the list is frequently updated.
