Start Time:          02/23/2017 3:00PM CST

Duration:             01:00 hour

URL:       http://ala.adobeconnect.com/r88rjasjmt6/

Access: Anyone who has the URL for the meeting can enter the room

Agenda: Discuss proposal from ALA-MW and next steps


If you have never attended an Adobe Connect meeting before:

  1. Adobe Connect has recently updated their software. When you log-in, you may notice a screen asking you to install the add-in. If you click “yes,” the update will install in about 20-30 seconds.
  2. You may need to complete the audio setup wizard after installing the add-in.
  3. Use Firefox, if possible -- Internet Explorer and Chrome seem to have some issues.
  4. Make certain you have an updated version of Flash.
  5. You will need a headset for VoIP. If you are using a machine with a built-in microphone, you will need to disable the built-in microphone and enable the microphone on your headset (a USB headset is best).
  6. Once you enter Adobe Connect (you will sign in as a guest -- so no log-in is needed), you will need to click on the speaker and microphone icons to activate -- both need to be GREEN.
  7. Please allow a few minutes to get in and test your audio, etc. before the start time.
  8. To test audio, click on ‘Meeting’ in upper left corner. Choose the audio set-up wizard. Click through every step, making sure the dropdown is set to your USB headset, and click through to the very last screen.
