Address for Professor Guth's Adobe Connect: sessions: https://connect.dco.dod.mil/profguthei (DCO is Defense Connect Online)
|You will need to download and install a DoD security certificate when using a non-DOD computer (you don’t need to download it when you use a DOD computer, and midshipmen computers are supposed to be DPD for this purpose). Go to https://www.dodpke.com/installroot/ (You can also access the download screen from DCO homepage https://www.dco.dod.mil , and select “DoD Certificates Download” from the menu on the left under “User Resources”), scroll down and download both “InstallRoot 3.13A.zip” and “InstallRoot 3.13B.zip” files (version numbers could change) under “Microsoft Windows - Command Line Versions.” Unzip and run the .exe file in the zip files. That will install the certificates. You only need to do this once.|
You must coordinate (phone, email, or in class) for a time to start the meeting.
The first time you use Adobe Connect, the program will ask to install a plug-in so you can share your desktop, and see someone else's.
You must request permission to log into the session
Hardware needed for Adobe Connect video-conferences:
Student participant, listed in order of importance:
Teacher needs #1 and #4. I have the video camera at home (from the job), but generally capture a still shot and don't send live video, or even dispense with it completely. If it were my personal money, and I didn't have any other need for a web cam, I would not buy it since it doesn't add much for the educational purpose of the conferences. It is also very handy for the instructor to have multiple monitors; you can share one monitor, and just drag windows onto it and back off to show different things. Drag and drop is much faster and more efficient than changing the window that is shared. The instructor might also want to have two computers, and watch on the second to see exactly what the students see.
