Finally i have worked out how to enable my students to be more active participants in our Adobe classroom without having to promote them with permissions that will allow them to ‘accidentally’ muck around with layouts & settings etc.

The secret is to assign individuals enhanced rights to only certain areas within the Adobe classroom – these can be turned on or off at any time – but need to be applied each time you come to class. Now they can write on the whiteboards, notes and upload files etc.

Thank you Rachel for this entry! I no doubt will be refering to this soon. I will be using Adobe Connect from January for MyPortfolio webinars and I have been dreading the lack of interaction. I have been in some webinars using the space recently where the participants actually took part and this is what I would like to see for these webinars. But I have to learn from scratch. So the resources you point to are very useful indeed. I just need to find out what version of Adobe I will be using or doesn t it matter?

Sure does - Adobe 9 is quite similar, though looks much slicker. It has more useful features, number one feature for me is the drop down menus that take away lists of things going on forever down the page. Adobe 7 users will know what i mean about that. It will enable us to use Adobe Presenter which we had previously been licensed by the MoE to use but wasn't compatible in our old version of Adobe (Doh!) Really looking forward to making more interactive lessons with Presenter. Adobe 9 also has a functionality of being able to link with H323 the video conferencing protocol. Maybe some technical boffin will then be able to link our NZ VC network with our Adobe classrooms which would be awesome. Then a school doesn't need to worry about not having VC capability, it can still link in through Adobe.

Kymm and i did a review of Adobe 8 when we were meant to be moving to that version over 2 years ago! So i guess a lot of the changes are similar to what we might see in V9 - you can read our notes on that here.

There are some useful resources at the VLN Adobe Development Group.

Also Adobe Support is excellent.

This is really useful, Rachel - thank you for sharing this :-) Do you know if the 'assign individual enhanced rights' works with Adobe Connect 9 too?
