Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro is a collaboration tool that can be accessed from any computer that has internet access. To learn more about this tool, see our Adobe Connect Information page.


Getting Started

To access Adobe Connect, you must first contact the administrator or instructor in charge of overseeing the discussion and request access as well as the site URL. Once you enter the URL, you should see a log-in page where you can log in as Guest or as a registered user. Please note that if there is no instructor present in the meeting room, you will not be able to log in.

Once you have logged in, you may be asked to install Ad Flash or additional browser add-ons. These add-ons should be installed to ensure optimal performance.

Navigating the Adobe Connect Interface

After you have entered the discussion room, your screen will be presented with several boxes or modules that contain various communication features. Depending on how the administrator has set things up, you may be able to use chat, microphone, and/or video conferencing features. In addition, you may also contact the presenter by using the “raise hand” feature as well as typing it out.
