New web conferencing software

From August 1st, we will be using Adobe Connect Pro v9 as our standard web conferencing / online classroom software. An outline of the program is available in this leaflet and in this Getting Started Guide. Initial tests indicate that the web meetings have better audio and video quality than previously, and the system works in a very similar way to its predecessor.

Connect replaces Blackboard Collaborate, which will not be available after July 31st.
At that time, we shall lose the recordings made on the old Collaborate/Elluminate systems, so please contact the e-Learning team if you need these to be downloaded.
