Adobe Connect Training Sessions

You can link here, https://connect.extension.iastate.edu/cms/ to join webinars at times below:

  • First Thursday of the Month: Web Tips 10am – 11am
    I will present a couple web tips that pertain to one topic and dive a little deeper into it. These sessions could be considered more advanced.They are usually about 30 to 40 minutes, but I reserve an hour in case there are any additional questions. I usually plan to present a topic for about 20-30 minutes and then answer any questions.
     
  • Second Thursday of the Month: Working through the manual 10am – 11am
    It takes 2 or 3 sessions to get through the entire manual, and then I start over and continue. This is presented at a beginner level and we skim the high points in hopes to ease into the information. All are welcome to both sessions and this would be good to start out. It is also good for anyone who would like to review editing the site.
