At IU, what is Adobe Connect?
Adobe Connect, IU's web collaboration and conferencing system, will be retired on August 31, 2017. After a comprehensive pilot evaluation, Zoom has been selected as its replacement. For more, see About the Adobe Connect retirement.
Over the next few months, UITS will be converting all Adobe Connect recordings to MP4 format. By early summer, you will be able to save converted files to your computer and upload them to Box or Kaltura.
Adobe Connect is a web collaboration tool available for all Indiana University students, faculty, and staff to use for administrative meetings and academic classes. Connect provides a virtual environment for sharing presentations, images, and desktop applications with remote participants; it also offers audio and videoconferencing, text chat, a digital whiteboard, and polling. Connect meeting participants must have a web browser with the Flash plug-in and a broadband Internet connection. If you will be hosting Connect meetings, we recommend you install the Adobe Connect add-in.
Adobe Connect works as follows:
- A host with an Adobe Connect 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 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.
