Adobe Connect is a synchronous collaboration/presentation tool that includes video and audio, content sharing, interactive chat, live polling, whiteboard, and recording capabilities.
NMSU provides access to Adobe Connect in two ways: 1)Adobe Connect in Canvas, which is hosted locally through ICT and provides 500 concurrent virtual seats, and 2)Host-based License Adobe Connect which is a single-user license with 100 virtual seats, and is subject to availability. You can request a host license using this form.
Under the Conferences tool in the left navigation menu.
In Canvas, Teachers, TAs, and Designers have the ability to create and host Adobe Connect meetings for the entire class. They can easily invite all students or selected students in the course to participate. If students have been placed in groups in Canvas, they can create a group Adobe Connect conference. See “Can students create a conference?” below for more information.
Most likely your conference name is too long. When creating a new Adobe Connect Conference in Canvas, the name must be 13 characters or less.
Yes, unless the conference has been concluded. Click on the gear icon to the right of the conference name, select edit, and re-name the conference using 13 characters or less.
Students that have been assigned to a group in the course can create conferences for their group. You can share the Student Guide – Student Groups and Adobe Connect in Canvas with your students for step-by-step instructions for student collaboration using Adobe Connect.
Adobe Connect in Canvas is a concurrent-seat license. Unlike host-based Adobe Connect licenses, AC in Canvas does not require the host to stay in the meeting room. For example, an instructor can create and start a meeting room for a group of students and then leave the room after promoting the students to the Presenter or Host level. Please note that this is only an option when using Adobe Connect in Canvas. Host-based Adobe Connect requires that the named host remain in the meeting room for the duration of the session.
