Acadia Divinity College Technical Support

Acadia Divinity College uses a number of tech systems that are unique to our classrooms. Support for these systems is provided by the College, and not through Tech Services (TS). If you need help with zoom, classroom or audiovisual equipment, or anything on the Acadia Divinity College website, please contact the ADC’s Director of Technology.

During the 2020-2021 Academic year, as all of our classes are offered online, additional technical support is available to our students. To arrange one-on-one help, please contact the Director of Technology.

ZOOM

Acadia Divinity College uses Zoom for all of its online instruction. This free software allows students to join a classroom through a live video conferencing system. Students are able to see, hear and interact with the class just like every other student. You can ask questions, join the conversation, and even do presentations from anywhere!

 

To learn more about how to use zoom you can view these zoom tutorial videos.
