Remote mentoring with Acrobat Connect

This year I am mentoring one of our BSc (Hons) students who is working on a project to create a social media aggregator application using HTML5 and CSS3.

We’re scheduled to have a one hour mentoring session each week, however we’ve decided to do a substantial part of this via web conference rather than face to face. This allows each of us to be located anywhere with an Internet connection, and also allows us to use a variety of collaborative tools, as well as to record the session for future reference.

The tool we’re using is Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro, which I’ve been using for a number of years for accessing webinars and working remotely with fellow educators. It provides a range of collaborative tools as well as webcam and audio-chat features. A version of the system, called Acrobat ConnectNow is also available for free with an Acrobat.com account.
