Transitioning from Adobe Connect to Zoom
After months of careful consideration of usage patterns and technology needs of our campus community, the Office of Teaching and Learning in collaboration with the division of Information Technology will begin to phase out the use of Adobe Connect web conferencing software at the University of Denver. All users will need to migrate their content from this application by the end of the Summer Quarter.
The initial phase of this project will require us to disable the ability to record meetings within Adobe Connect effective June 8, 2018. We encourage individuals to use the University’s enterprise Zoom software as a replacement for online meetings. Zoom can host synchronous online meetings and has the option to record your entire meeting. To get started with Zoom, you may refer to the following resource: http://otl.du.edu/academic-technology/zoom/
In addition to the resources above, Zoom now allows both local and cloud recording. Read more about each choice here: http://otl.du.edu/knowledgebase/zoom-cloud-and-local-recording/
The Adobe Connect server will remain online until August 21, 2018 allowing individuals time to convert any recorded meeting(s) that they wish to preserve for use in other video delivery systems. For resources detailing how to convert any recorded meetings that should be preserved, have a look at the following knowledge base article: http://otl.du.edu/knowledgebase/adobe-connect-video-download/
If you have any questions or if you need assistance transferring content, please contact the Office of Teaching & Learning at 303-871-2084 or the IT Help Center at 303-871-4700.
