  • Adobe Connect - Support Ending May 15, 2020

    Adobe Connect allows faculty, staff and student accounts so anyone can initiate their own collaborations and work sessions. It functions well at low bandwidth, which is important for when you are at the cabin or for students in locations with sketchy service! Check out the Adobe Connect video overview on its features.

    There are instructions below on how to transition your recorded videos to Zoom.

    Zoom Support

    You can request assistance directly from Zoom 24 x 7, including public holidays, where agents or technical engineers are available for email or live support. You can also find self-service guides at the Zoom Help Center or watch some of the Zoom Video Tutorials. If you need something more directed, attend one of live training sessions provided by Zoom.

    You can always request assistance via the Minnesota State Service Desk.

    Transitioning from Adobe Connect

    If switching to Zoom is more than you can handle right now? No worries! As a reminder, Adobe Connect will remain available until May 15, 2020. Take the next year to slowly transition to Zoom. Any recordings that are stored in Adobe Connect that you WANT to keep, should be downloaded before May 15, 2020. If you need a new home for these recordings, go ahead and upload these recordings to Kaltura MediaSpace. Download step-by-step instructions on transitioning your recorded videos to Zoom.
