Adobe Connect and Zoom are desktop video conferencing systems allowing for real-time interaction between instructors and students. Participate in the class via the web from a location that is most convenient for you, and connect with others without the costs of commuting. Access to high-speed Internet connection, a webcam and a headset microphone are required for interactive video conferencing. The cost of a webcam and headset is approximately $35 for each (USB-type recommended). Many newer computers include a camera as a standard feature.
