Web Conferencing

Welcome to the Web Conferencing Center!

The Extension Web Conferencing Center provides you with knowledge, service, and solutions to support all of your web conferencing needs.  Our services are available to all Extension staff and we encourage you to investigate opportunities where web conferencing can reduce costs while increasing efficiency and interactivity.  If you would like to speak to one of us about what we can do for you, please contact us using the information at the bottom of this page.

Connect allows you to share video, audio, and presentations remotely as well as host interactive meetings online.  This saves institutions the cost of travel while providing a level of interactivity far exceeding traditional phone and web cast technologies.  I encourage you follow the links below to learn more about Connect and what it can do for you.

Update 6/15/2011
Adobe Connect reports that the current version of Adobe Flash is having problems loading and showing Connect recordings.  You will just see the loading screen with the green circle and the slides will not load.  Adobe has provided us with this information on fixing this problem.
