Upgrade- June 9, 2012
|Recently Purdue upgraded to a
newer version of Adobe Connect. It has been
completely rewritten for greater stability and
improved usability. Below you will find a
general Q & A section provided through WL that
attempts to address many of the inquiries brought
forth by this upgrade.
What do I
need to do?
don’t need to worry about the recordings and content you
currently have in Connect. Those will remain
unchanged. After the upgrade, the content you
currently have in your meeting rooms will be right where
you left it.
However, there are a few
differences in how the new version of Connect looks, and
some of the buttons and controls have moved. After
the upgrade, please log in to one of your meeting rooms
and familiarize yourself with the new look and feel.
What changes will I notice?
The main layout is the same, but the
window styling has changed:
Settings and preferences for each pod,
which used to be accessed via individual
settings menus in the lower right corner of each
pod, have been consolidated into a single
Preferences dialog box:
Camera and Voice:
Audio and video sharing controls have
been consolidated at the top of the screen, with
simple on/off toggle switches for each.
Control for your own speakers has also
preview mode has been added. When you turn
on your camera, you’ll see a preview before you
start sharing the image publicly:
Layout buttons are on the right side of
the screen rather than the bottom, and now
include thumbnail representations:
Changes: The attendee list now
functions as the breakout control pod as well.
Toggle between attendee list and breakout view
with buttons at the top of the pod:
There is no longer a button which turns on the
presenter-only area. You have to go to the
Meeting menu to do so.
Tabbed chats have been added, making
it easier to chat with multiple individuals
during a session:
Notes pod changes:
can now change the color of notes and use bold
or italic font.
Bulleted lists have been added
is a new “export to .rtf” feature
As you look at the new Adobe
Connect, please contact
with any questions or concerns you have. Please
also consider attending the first users’ group meeting,
where we will demonstrate many of the new features of
Connect, discuss best practices for audio use, and
answer questions from the audience:
