Creating an Adobe Connect meeting

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.

To create an Adobe Connect meeting:

  1. Log into the Connect Manager with your IU Network ID username and passphrase.
  2. Select the Meetings tab, and then click New Meeting.
  3. In the "Name:" field, give your meeting a descriptive name. This name will be used to identify your meeting when you're working in the Connect Manager.
  4. In the "Custom URL:" field, enter an easy-to-remember, descriptive URL. Your participants will use this address to join your meeting; a short, descriptive name will be easier for them to remember. If you leave this field blank, the system will generate a random URL for you.
  5. Skip the "Summary:", "Start Time:", and "Duration:" fields. Your Connect room is open from the time you create it until you delete it, and attendees can enter before, during, and after the scheduled meeting time.
  6. Accept the IU Default Template.
  7. Choose a language. English is the default selection.
  8. Change the "Access:" option to Anyone who has the URL for the meeting can enter the room. Your meeting attendees may not have IU credentials, and this option will enable them to join your meeting.
  9. Under "Audio Conference Settings", leave Do not include any audio conference with this meeting unchecked. You can link a phone conference into your Connect room (instead of, or in addition to, using Connect's computer audio options).
  10. To create the meeting, click Finish.

If your meeting has successfully been created, you'll see the "Meeting Properties" page with the meeting's details, including the URL you and your attendees will use to join the meeting. To return to this page later, log into the Connect Manager, select the Meetings tab, and follow the link to your meeting.

For recurring Connect meetings, consider reusing a single Connect meeting room rather than creating a new one for each scheduled instance. A persistent meeting room allows you to keep the same URL for your meeting, and all content (e.g., presentations, chats) and configurations (e.g., visible pods, layouts) will always be available.

Once you've created an Adobe Connect meeting, you can customize it so it's optimally configured to suit your particular needs; for instructions, see Configuring your Adobe Connect meeting.
