In recent weeks, MSU renewed their contract with Adobe Inc. to continue the web conferencing service Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro. (formerly Breeze Meeting) This online meeting technology offers the ability to hold meetings or share courses across the world. Adobe Connect features include: up to 16 web cams visible in a single connection, voice conferencing using Voice Over I.P. (VOIP), a whiteboard, sharing computer desktops, presenting a PowerPoint, break out rooms, sharing a link to a web site, chat and recording for future playback for those that cannot attend. Adobe Connect works with both Mac and PC operating systems.
Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro is different from Adobe Presenter. Presenter is a plug-in for PowerPoint that helps one create an audio narrated PowerPoint presentation which can be embedded into a course site in the ANGEL Course Management System. Unlike Adobe Connect, Presenter is for PC users only for content creation. Both Mac and PC end users may view the content though.
MSU has a limited number of licenses for both Connect and Presenter, so access is granted on a request basis. If you have a need for the Presenter Plug-in, email Distance Learning Services: email@example.com or call: 517-355-2345. To request access to Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro, email Virtual University Design and Technology: firstname.lastname@example.org Please allow for 24 – 48 hours of response time from either email address.
