Last month, Adobe hosted their annual creativity conference, Adobe MAX. It’s a fun event that often leaves us feeling inspired, so we thought we would share some highlights with you:
You can watch the recordings of all of the sessions for free on the conference website.

Ensure Other Lecturers Can Access Your Blackboard Zoom Sessions

If a co-Instructor will be lecturing in Zoom sessions set up in your Blackboard course, remember they need to initiate their GW Zoom accounts. To initiate a Zoom account, go to and choose “Configure your account”.
If your guest lecturer doesn’t have any GW accounts, send them the “guest link” in the session’s settings.
Best practice? Do a quick test session a day or more before the class with the co-instructor or guest lecturer, using the same computers you will use on the day of the class or event.
