This guide will show you how to manage audio and video options for participants as a host in an Adobe Connect meeting.
Adobe Connect requires a webcam, a microphone (in a headset or webcam if not built in), and headphones (computer speakers cannot be used).
Automatically Giving Access to Participants
Select the Meeting button in the top left corner of the window, hover your mouse over Manage Access and Entry, and then select Auto-Promote Participants to Presenters. This automatically gives all participants in the meeting access to audio and video options, which means that they can speak, use their webcam, draw on shared files, share their whiteboard, etc.
A gray information icon will appear on the Adobe Connect menu. To disable the auto-promote feature, select the drop-down arrow and select Turn Auto-Promote Off.
Managing Audio and Video Rights for Participants During a Meeting
If you don’t want to automatically give participants access to audio and/or video rights, you can control which participants have which rights during the meeting. Select the name of the participant to whom you wish to grant rights. Select Enable Microphone and/or Enable Video. A microphone icon will appear next to that participant’s name if you select Enable Audio.
A black box will appear on the participant’s screen to notify that he or she now has microphone and/or video access.
To give only audio rights to all participants, select the Audio button at the top of the page and select Microphone Rights for Participants.
In order for a participant to speak, he or she must select the microphone icon at the top of the page to connect.
To take back control of the audio, select the Audio button at the top of the page and select Microphone rights for Participants again. Then select your own microphone icon on the Adobe Connect menu.
In order for a participant to share his/her webcam, the participant must select Start My Webcam and then Start Sharing.
To stop sharing a participant's video, select the student's name in the Participants section and then select Disable Video.
