KUMC soon to 'self-host' Adobe Connect

Update on Adobe Connect at KUMC

Plans are in motion to switch from running Adobe Connect on Adobe servers to running and maintaining our Connect presence here at KUMC.

End users should not notice any 'in session' change, but the switch will bring us these significant advantages:
  • LDAP integration. Users will sign in with their LDAP credentials - no more additional info will be required.
  • HIPPA compliance. Users will be able to discuss sensitive information knowing that the session is secure.
  • Blackboard integration. Users will be able to manage their Connect meetings from within their Blackboard course.
Look for further announcements concerning piloting and full roll-out dates.
