ARCHIVED: Inviting participants to 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.

The easiest way to invite participants to an Adobe Connect meeting is to compose and send an email message to the attendees. This message should include the meeting URL, meeting details (i.e., time, date, agenda), and instructions for logging in.

When attendees go to the URL for your Connect room, they'll each have the option to enter the room as a guest or to log in using an IU Network ID. Attendees with IU credentials may still choose to log in as guests.

You can use the following sample text in your meeting invitation to tell users how to log in:

  1. In your web browser, go to the meeting URL:
  2. Select Enter as a Guest.
  3. Type your name in the "Name" field.
  4. Click Enter Room to join the meeting.

By default, meeting attendees will join your Connect meeting room with Participant privileges. They'll be able to see and hear activity in the room, text chat, and change their status indicators. 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 details about sharing content with participants in an Adobe Connect meeting, see ARCHIVED: Using audio in an Adobe Connect meeting and ARCHIVED: Using video in an Adobe Connect meeting.
