Instructors: Adobe Connect

ATTENTION! Adobe Connect will no longer be used as the university campus-wide videoconference solution after June 30, 2018.

The videoconference solution Zoom has taken the place of Adobe Connect. 

If you have recordings within Adobe Connect that you wish to save and upload to Panopto for future use you will have until June 30, 2019 to get them downloaded and transferred over to Panopto. 

Keep in mind that to get videos downloaded to your computer it requires the recordings to play real-time. So if you have a 30 minute recording it will take at least 30 minutes to download it to your computer. If you have a lot of recordings you are wanting to save you will need to plan ahead as your computer will have to remain on and running during the "download" of the recording.
