Ascend Online Training

About Connect and your Online Class

Adobe Connect is a Flash-based online software we use to facilitate your online class with Ascend Training. The instructor and live students are at our Chicago location. Remote students log onto Adobe Connect, view the instructors screen, are able to ask questions, and share their own screen.

What hardware & software do I need?

You will need the latest version of the software being taught loaded on your computer. You also will need to have a computer with at least 8 GIG of memory, 16 GIG is preferred for classes like Photoshop and Premiere Pro.

Having a 2nd screen like an iPad or laptop is helpful so you can view the instructor screen on one, and follow along on your screen to complete class exercises.

Fast Internet Connection: Ethernet is GREAT! WiFi Works Also.

Go to Speedtest http://speedtest.net to check your internet speed. You will need a minimum 2 MPS for a successful experience.

If you are participating at a business, please check with your IT people to ensure there are no firewalls that might prevent you from logging onto the class.
