Adobe Presenter is a useful tool for developing presentations specifically for online distribution using the Flash file format. Once you are introduced to the capabilities of Adobe Presenter, you will be able to design, develop, and deliver interactive narrated PowerPoint presentations.
To use Adobe Presenter to produce narrated PowerPoint presentations you must have a Windows PC meeting the following requirements:
To publish your Adobe Presentations, you must have a Adobe Connect account. Please send a request to Carrie Cao at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a new Adobe Connect account. In your request, please include your full name and your VWCC email address. Once a Adobe Connect account has been set up for you, you will receive an email from the Adobe Connect server which includes your login name (should be your VWCC email address) and password (vwcc). You need to change your password as soon as possible.
Once you log in, you will see the Adobe Connect Manager window. Click on My Profile in the upper right hand corner. Select Change My Password, and create a password. Complete this change by clicking Save. Your account is now set up. If at any time you wish to change your password, select the Change My Password link again.
Adobe Presenter works through a plugin for PowerPoint. Plugins add functionality to other programs, but cannot run independently. Because of this, you must first install PowerPoint (version 97, 2000, 2003 or 2007), part of the Microsoft Office suite of tools. Once PowerPoint is installed, you may proceed with installing Adobe Presenter.
NOTE: If you need to install Adobe Presenter on your office workstations, you will need to contact IET at 857-7354.
Follow the instructions in the Getting Started presentation that is installed with the product. It provides step-by-step instructions on how to create and publish your first Adobe Presentation.
