Student Groups and Adobe Connect in Canvas

As a student you have the ability to create or join an Adobe Connect Study Group in any course that has the Adobe Connect LTI tool enabled. This will allow you to create a virtual meeting and individually invite other course members to join you. To join a Study Group meeting click the Join button next to the meeting you are invited to.

To create a Study Group meeting:

  1. Click the Add Meeting button in the Study Group section of Adobe Connect.
  2. Name the session and click Next.
  3. Select the classmates you want to invite to the study group under the Canvas Available Users list. Click the Add button below the list.
  4. Set the User Role in the Adobe Connect meeting room by selecting the name of the student in the Adobe Connect Participants list on the right and selecting Set User Role below the list.
    1. Participants have minimal privileges and will need to wait for the meeting host to enable their microphone, camera, and screen sharing privileges.
    2. Presenters have default permission to turn on their microphone, camera, and screen share options.
    3. Hosts have full control of the meeting room.
  5. You have the option to record your study group. Recordings will appear under the Recordings tab in the Study Group section.
Getting Started with i>Clicker

NMSU students can purchase an i>Clicker from the NMSU Bookstore using ISBN 1429280476.

i>Clicker is an audience response system allows students to instantly provide feedback and answer questions posed by their instructors.

  • Each student uses a “clicker,” a portable, handheld device that allows students to vote by “clicking” on the appropriate button for his/her choice.
  • Each instructor uses a receiver that collects votes sent by students’ clickers. Light and portable, the receiver is powered through any computer’s USB port.
  • Instructors present a question and enable polling.
  • Each student responds by “clicking” the appropriate button for his or her choice.
  • A wireless signal is sent immediately from each responding clicker to the receiver.
  • The receiver, through i>clicker’s easy-to-use software, logs and stores the data of each individual student.
  • The instructor can then display voting results in a graph, to the audience.
  • The results are also available for later analysis, grading, and exporting to Canvas.
