2015 Changes for KSRE Adobe Connect Users
2015 Changes for KSRE Adobe Connect Users

As part of the integration of KSRE IT services with KSU IT services, we are in the process of evaluating our current license with Adobe Connect. Over the past seven years, Adobe Connect has served us well as a powerful online communication tool. 
At this point in time, we ask that you start to use the KSU Zoom web conferencing system. The use of Zoom is free for all K-State faculty and staff. Zoom contains many similar features as Adobe Connect for webinars and online meetings. There are plenty of online Zoom resources to help you along.

Zoom resources can be found at...

With the migration over to Zoom, if you have any Connect recordings that you would like to keep, you will need to save them offline ASAP. All saved recordings will need to completed by May 1, 2015.
A quick illustration on "How to Save your KSRE Adobe Connect Recordings" is now posted online.


If you need any additional help or have questions, please feel free to contact Gerry Snyder at gsnyder@ksu.edu .
