Having a class via Adobe Connect was a new experience for me. There were some pros and cons while using this software while everyone was individually at different places but connected online through the Third Space.
There were a lot of functions that we could use using Adobe Connect such as the chatting and video/audio communication. This, however, caused me to feel so distracted as I had to multi-task. I had to listen to Randall talking, eyeing the chat section once in awhile, and looking at videos of my classmates, all at the same time.
Since we were using technology to conduct the class, there would always be technical issues along the way. These included feedbacks and microphone malfunctions. I think fixing these issues wasted a lot of precious time.
Some of us might feel so awkward when voicing out their opinions in class as everyone would look at you. However, online, I was able to ignore all the stares and just focused on myself as I answered Randall’s questions. Everyone had a chance to answer and I think that was a positive thing in terms of class participatory.
