I have been testing how the Canvas set up for using Adobe Connect works in Canvas as what happens not as described in Ean Harkers useful guides at Create a Conference in Canvas (Adobe Connect Integration) and Canvas to Adobe Connect Best Practices / Troubleshooting. I have established that the expected behaviours (unexpected to me) are
- When student creates a room = host in own room
- When student enters other’s room = participant
- When staff enter others’ rooms = host ( = default)
- When staff enter own room = host in own room
We can live with this but only if can restrict students from creating adobe connect rooms due to our limited concurrent user licence. However, if I turn off the student permission to create web conferences then they cannot create any conferences at all not even big blue button (BBB) in their group area. This permission is all or nothing.
Ideally we would like
a) staff only to be able to create / manage an adobe connect webcon at course level
b) students to be able to create webcon in group area that they manage themselves - using just BBB
How can I achieve this?
I have looked at the eSync offering eSync Training and Adobe Connect but it is expensive, still in development and offers too many options
