On March 12, 2017, Adobe Connect Meeting has been upgraded from version to 9.2.1 to 9.5.6 to address a number of known issues as well as to ensure that our campus community has access to the program’s new features and improved tools.

Here are a few things we would like to highlight:

  3. Recordings/ archives can now be saved in MP4 format: https://helpx.adobe.com/adobe-connect/release-note/connect-95-whats-new.html#OfflineRecordingsinMP4format
  4. Previously, iOS (iPad & iPhone) users were not able to connect to an Adobe Connect Meeting that was created within a D2L course unless they were given the direct URL to the session. This issue has now been resolved.
  5. Meeting Hosts and Presenters are now able to do more with the Adobe Connect Mobile. Check out https://helpx.adobe.com/adobe-connect/adobe-connect-mobile-help.html
