Moodle integration

All institutions using Moodle and Adobe Conect at DeiC can now integrate the two services. All other LMS systems supporting LTI v. 1.1 can also integrate Adobe Connect.

Downtime due to service

Connect can be used 24 hours a day

The Adobe Connect service at DeiC can be accessed 24 hours a day, as the servers are being backed up seemlessly. 

Service during 7.00-7.45 CET/CEST

Typically, upgrades of application and system software etc. will take place between 7.00 and 8.00 am CET/CEST. This is the time of least activity on the Connect servers. You can still use the Connect service during this time, as the service continues during upgrades.

With version 10.2, it is now time to disable Flash Player in ones browser to get the best experience in Adobe Connect.

Thereby, the meeting always opens in the desktop application, Adobe Connect Meeting Application, or possibly directly in the browser with the support that will be extended over the coming months:
