Top Tips for Good Adobe Connect Meetings

  1. Connect to our Adobe Connect instance always using HTTPS https://connect.ocad.ca
  2. Almost always use Single-Speaker Mode with Connect.

    Enable Single Speaker Mode

    This only allows one speaker to talk at once. Use the hand raising feature, for others to talk and mute yourself when required. It's possible for everyone to talk, but we recommend headsets and using the Full Duplex audio. Remember, it's just like real life when people talk over one another: no fun.
  3. In the Meeting > Preferences > Video, use 4:3 video and set the settings to High.

  4. In the Meeting > Preferences > Microphone, set your audio quality to High or Custom (Echo Path 256, Noise Suppression and Non Linear Processing. We caution against enabling the Speex codec: there is an Adobe KB article that states that if you record the conversation, and you have an active video pod, you may get audio drift.
