If you are a frequent user of Adobe Connect at UCD or ANR, you already know there will be a system upgrade from version 7.5 to 8 tomorrow. Adobe inserted a pop-up for the past week as you enter a Connect meeting room as Host. This upgrade is taking place on Adobe's server where they host our accounts. It's all up to Adobe to make it happen.
This upgrade is actually a migration. Our stuff is moving. There will be some significant changes, but the previous recordings and links you may have generated from Adobe Connect use over the past few years should not change. Adobe will be redirecting everything to the new URL we will be using and we will still provide access through the ANR Portal.
The Adobe Connect Pro 8 features list includes a few things we've been looking for including the ability to integrate ReadyTalk audio conferencing, a desktop application for easier download of recordings, better audio and video quality, keyboard shortcuts, and rich text formatting in the note pods.
