Upload Adobe Connect (Virtual Classroom) recordings

This guide will take you through how to:

  • Create an 'Offline Copy' of a Virtual Classroom Recording
  • Upload to Panopto

Please note: unlike other programs Adobe Connect requires you to playback the whole recording session to make an offline copy. Please keep this in mind and review all the instructions below and onscreen during the offline copy creation process.

Create an 'Offline Copy' of a Virtual Classroom Recording

  1. Log into the virtual classroom you wish to access the recording of (or go directly to vcs.unisa.edu.au and locate the meeting - if you enter this way skip to step 3 after locating the meeting)
    Log into Adobe Connect server
  2. Go to Meeting > Manage Meeting Information
    Go to Manage Meeting Information
  3. From the Meeting Information window click Recordings
    Click on Recordings
  4. From the recording you wish to download click Actions > Make Offline
    Go to Actions Make Offline
  5. On the Offline Recording screen please review the requirements for the playback and ensure your computer is set up appropriately, then click Next
    Check make offline settings
  6. Review the settings and alter if required (note MP4 is the recommended format if you plan to upload to Panopto). Then click Proceed with Offline Recording
    Review offline settings
  7. Find the appropriate location to save your file, give it a name, and click Save
    Save the file
  8. The Virtual Classroom session will now playback in full while it makes the recording. You can not rush this process.
  9. Once complete you can review the file created. If you are happy with the video you can now upload it to Panopto.
  10. Navigate to unisa.hosted.panopto.com and login using your staff credentials
  11. Click on Create > Upload Media
    Click on Create Upload
  12. From the upload media screen you can either drag and drop the files into the window or click and select the files from the list
    Add files to upload
  13. The files will upload. The time this takes will depend on the file sizes and your internet connection. Once you receive the "Upload Complete" message you can close the window. It will still take a bit more time for Panopto to finish processing the video.
