ARCHIVED: Joining an Adobe Connect meeting

Adobe Connect, IU's previous web collaboration and conferencing system, became read-only on August 31, 2017, and was fully retired on December 28, 2017. After a comprehensive pilot evaluation, Zoom was selected as its replacement.

UITS converted Adobe Connect recordings to MP4 format, but Adobe Presenter files were not automatically converted. UITS offers a content migration service for faculty who need assistance moving Presenter content to other platforms. To take advantage of this service, complete the Adobe Presenter Migration Support form.

To join an Adobe Connect meeting at Indiana University:

  1. Go to the URL of the meeting; this may be in an email message you received about the meeting, or in a Microsoft Outlook meeting invitation from the meeting organizer.
  2. Choose Enter as a Guest, type your first and last name, and then click Enter Room.

    Alternatively, if you have an IU Network ID, you can use your IU username and passphrase to join the room, and a Connect account will automatically be created for you.

  3. If necessary, enter the passcode supplied by the meeting organizer.
  4. If necessary, ARCHIVED: adjust your audio settings. You may need to run the ARCHIVED: Audio Setup Wizard.

By default, you'll join the Connect meeting room with Participant privileges. You'll be able to see and hear activity in the room, text chat, and change your status indicator. Additional permissions (e.g., microphone use, screen sharing) may be granted at the discretion of the meeting Host. For more on adjusting permissions, see ARCHIVED: Elevating attendee permissions or user roles in Adobe Connect.

For detailed instructions on preparing for and attending Connect meetings, see Adobe Connect setup instructions for IT Training online events.
