Adobe Connect Notes

  • If you want to share video best to be wired - rather than wireless
  • For students best to have audio off unless talking (reduces bandwidth)
  • For presenter running video/audio best not to stop microphone (on EITs computers may freeze computer for a while)
  • If you have students in class asking questions and you're using a web-cam, repeat the question (am trying out a mutli-directional microphone to see if this is better)
