Virtual classroom provides many useful tools to learning and collaboration online for example file sharing, webconferencing and chat. To participate with your voice in online classes you need a headset microphone. It is the most cost efficient and functional way for hassle free communication.
Before attending an online meeting from a computer, make sure you have the latest Adobe Flash Player installed (if you use it with browser) or you have installed Adobe Connect application. You can install the latest version of Flash Player here.
How to log in
All virtual classrooms have a unique web address. You will get the address from your teacher, or from Learn or via e-mail. All teachers have their own virtual classrooms and the addresses are commonly in form: https://flax.xamk.fi/firstnamelastname. (The last part of the address is teacher´s firstname and lastname written together without capital letters). Other addresses are used as well, so always check the address from the teacher before attending.
Once you have the address to AC meeting room, open it in Adobe Connect application or web browser and follow the steps below:
- Choose Guest option
- Write your firstname and last name to the Name text field
- Click Enter Room button and wait for the teacher to accept your login.
If you need to share content in virtual room, teacher can give you presenter-rights in session.
