Scenario 1: Faculty Lecture

This scenario will break each section into the items you need to consider, the benefits they will have on your meeting and a timeline for when these tasks should be considered/resolved.  Scroll down the page to discover a checklist, with timeline, that can help you manage your online session. 


Pre-Planning Considerations

Task Benefits


Let the participants know that there will be an online meeting as soon as you know.  Informing your participants will help them manage their expectations, as well as giving them ample time to prepare.


Wearing a headset with microphone, while presenting the material, will make your voice clear.  We encourage participants to use headsets, when connecting to the online session.  Using headsets will allow them to hear the audio, clearly, while eliminating many of the complications that can arise with audio. Review the Technical Troubleshooting page to discover even more benefits to wearing headsets during your connect session.

Participant Preparation

Send or provide information to the participants detailing the what they will need to know so that they can be successful accessing the online session.  One great way to provide this information is with a D2L News Item. In the information you provide be sure to include this link: Adobe Connect System Check This will bring users to a website that will run through a series of tests, determining if their preferred browser is ready to run and online session.  Run the system check yourself, to determine if your browser is ready to run an Adobe Connect session.  


Creating and Running an Online Session

Task Benefits

Create the Online Room

Go through the necessary steps to create an online room.  Remember if you decide to make the room Private, you will need to invite the attendees.  Navigate to the Creating a Session to review the necessary steps in creating an online room. 

Access Room and Activate Presentation Tools

After creating the online room, join the room and activate your microphone and webcam (optional). Joining the room 15 minutes prior to the start time will give you a chance to troubleshoot any last minute technical issues. 

To review all of the tools available to you, navigate to the the Connect Session Overview page.  


Post-Meeting Considerations (Optional)

Task Benefits

Record Online Session

Prior to the start of your online meeting select the Record Meeting option.  Review the documentation, found on the Recording Sessions page for step-by-step instruction on how to record an online session. 

View Recordings in D2L

Once the online session has ended, the recording is now considered to be an archive.  We recommend reviewing your sessions before sharing with participants or making the recording 'Public'.  Click the link, to review instructions on viewing recordings in D2L: View Recordings in D2L. To view the recording, simply click on the room link after selecting Archives.

Add Recording Link to Content List in D2L

You may want to make the recording available to the class for later use.  This would benefit those who were not able to attend the session or would like to review at a later date.  Review the Add Recording Link to Content List section of the Recording Sessions page for step by step instructions.
