TTF Report on web conferencing

Extract on Web-Conferencing and Adobe Connect issues from report presented at ICANN 60 Abu Dhabi 


Adobe Connect 

ICANN and the At-Large community primarily uses the Adobe Connect solution (http://www.adobe.com/products/adobeconnect.html) to do its web conferencing. Using this tool effectively is important to anyone wanting to participate in At-Large Working Groups and your Regional At-Large Organisations (RALO) conference calls.

The TTF is researching plugins for Adobe Connect to further enhance/improve the benefits of conference calls for At-Large.

Alternative Web Conferencing Options

The TTF explored a variety of conferencing solutions when ICANN appeared to be switching to LucidMeetings, a cloud based conferencing solution in mid 2013. The TTF has held several meetings with LucidMeetings  The TTF used LUCID for its WG calls from late 2013 to mid 2014, before returning to Adobe Connect.

Several TTF members has mentioned other tools for consideration for use by At-Large Structures and/or for use by At-Large WGs. The TTF has reviewed several of these conferencing solutions with special purpose calls to test these solutions.

See the Comparison of webconferencing solutions page with the list of conferencing solutions tested so far.

    On the subject of downloading the Android app, there was some confusion about where to load the latest version.  The link on this page will take you, indirectly, to the Android Market used by Google.    The version (at the time of writing this) is 2.2.   I suggest that, for Android, the best course is to go directly to Google Play.




  2. Just remembered my second point - please forgive the extra note.

    At the outset, it might be wise to mention (again) that, for the most part, audio communication currently takes place through the telephone bridge, rather than through Adobe Connect.
