Thereby, you can conduct online meetings with your colleagues, whereever they are, or you can extend the outreach with online learning from your department.
Implementing Connect LTI Proxy in front of your own Adobe Connect installation
Connect LTI Proxy is open source and may be used by any organisation that is hosting Adobe Connect for a number of independent organizations. Content in Adobe Connect is secured and cannot be openly accessed between the organisations.
Implementing Connect LTI Proxy in front of their own Adobe Connect includes:
All institutions using Moodle and Adobe Conect at DeiC can now integrate the two services. All other LMS systems supporting LTI v. 1.1 can also integrate Adobe Connect.
Thereby lecturers may easily create Adobe Connect meeting rooms from Moodle. They may automatically add course attendees to the meeting room, and automatically list recordings in Moodle.
Contact DeiC for further information about how to run tests against an existing Connect test server at DeiC: firstname.lastname@example.org
Lecturers and personnel at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) have for some time used Connect Proxy Module for CampusNet for easy setup of meeting in Adobe Connect from CampusNet.
Here you can see how easily you can create meetings rooms and access meetings and recordings:

Connect LTI Proxy is a web service in front of Adobe Connect at DeiC that enables other institutions to integrate Adobe Connect with portal solutions such as learning management systems (LMS). All LMS systems supporting LTI v. 1.1. can also integrate Adobe Connect.
Currently, Adobe Connect at DeiC has been integrated with:
- CampusNet (DTU, MSK)
- Moodle (DMJX, ITU, AAMS a.o.)
- Blackbaord (AU, SDU)
- Canvas (CBS, KU)
- ItsLearning (UC Absalon a.o.)
Connect LTI Proxy enables these functionalities in for example an LMS:

Here you can see some of the advantages of Adobe Connect, compared to other systems. More comparisons will be added.
A number of other national research and educational networks (NRENs) in Europe offer Adobe Connect as a service. This applies to DFN (Germany), SWITCH (Switzerland), ARNES (Slovenia), CESNET (Czech Republic), SURFnet (Netherlands), SUNET (Sweden) and FUnet (Finland).
DeiC in Denmark is part of this network through the pan-European organization for NRENs, GÉANT, and part of the development of the Adobe Connect service internationally.
Connect can be used 24 hours a day
The Adobe Connect service at DeiC can be accessed 24 hours a day, as the servers are being backed up seemlessly.
Service during 7.00-7.45 CET/CEST
Typically, upgrades of application and system software etc. will take place between 7.00 and 8.00 am CET/CEST. This is the time of least activity on the Connect servers. You can still use the Connect service during this time, as the service continues during upgrades.
