Questions about the online format of the College Application Workshop?

For those in Central Ohio who wish we had an in-person workshop, we want to put your mind to rest regarding this online class! We are parents too and understand the appeal of an in-person class.

However, our class uses an online classroom tool that we have never seen used by a K-12 school district or college in our area. It’s called Adobe Connect, and we learned about it through the national online K-12 Connections Academy schools.

We have successfully used this platform for the previous four years of this workshop and are blown away by how the platform facilitates engagement with students. We know from the input we gathered from our students that they were pleased with the experience.

The platform allows us to use webcams, live instruction, small group collaboration in breakout rooms, one-on-one support, multiple communication methods including voice, chat, polling, and much more. All resources (documents, videos, worksheets, etc.) will be shared electronically in a workshop portfolio.
