At IU, what is the Adobe Connect Meeting Service?
Adobe Connect Meeting provides Indiana University students, faculty, and staff with a web collaboration tool for administrative meetings and academic classes. Web collaboration, or web conferencing, provides a virtual environment for sharing presentations, images, and desktop applications with remote participants. Adobe Connect Meeting also offers audio and videoconferencing, text chat, a digital whiteboard, and polling. Adobe Connect Meeting requires a web browser with the Flash plug-in and a broadband Internet connection.
Indiana University's Adobe Connect service is integrated with IU's
Active Directory Service for authentication. You should use your IU Network ID to log into Connect. Contact IU's
Video Help Desk (812-856-2020,
cthelp ) with questions.
Note: Adobe Connect was originally named Breeze, so you may hear both terms used interchangeably.
Adobe Connect Meeting works as follows:
- A host with a Connect Meeting account logs into the Connect
Manager to create a meeting room with a unique URL. The
meeting host communicates the URL to meeting attendees, who can then
open the meeting in a web browser. Attendees do not need a Connect
Meeting account to join the meeting; they can simply log in as guests.
- Once in the meeting, the host can broadcast audio and video, share a computer screen or presentation, and text chat with attendees. The host can also promote individual meeting attendees to allow them to do the same.
