This summer NMSU is transitioning to the eSync Adobe Connect Canvas LTI.
The information below is for the Canvas Conferences Adobe Connect integration.
What is Adobe Connect?
Adobe Connect is a synchronous collaboration/presentation tool that includes video and audio, content sharing, interactive chat, live polling, whiteboard, and recording capabilities.
What is the difference between Host-license Adobe Connect and Adobe Connect in Canvas?
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.
Where do I find Adobe Connect in Canvas?
Under the Conferences tool in the left navigation menu.
How do I create an Adobe Connect in Canvas conference?
Who can create an Adobe Connect in Canvas conference?
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.
I created a conference using Adobe Connect in Canvas, but got this error message: There was an error joining the conference. What does this mean?
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.
My conference name is too long. Can I change it?
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.
Does the host of the conference have to stay in the Adobe Connect in Canvas meeting room?
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.
