Adobe Connect a Web Conferencing Platform

Adobe Connect is a web conferencing platform for web meetings, eLearning, and webinars. We have 30 licenses JI-wide and been using it for a couple of years now. This tool is very powerful and at the same time easy to use so we really want to encourage our faculty here at the JIBC to use it more often. For this reason we have created an Adobe Connect Visual Quick Start package which includes:

  1. Visual Quick Start Guide for Host/Presenter
  2. Visual Quick Start Guide for Participants
  3. System Requirements

Some Great Features of Adobe Connect:

  • Adobe Connect has a clean, simple, and flexible interface; you can create different layouts and then arrange a variety of pods in each room. There are chat pods, file/screen sharing pods, survey pods, note pods, and more.
  • Our license allows 100 participants in each meeting
  • It allows participants to sign in as guests so we don’t have to manage additional usernames and passwords.
  • It is very easy to schedule meetings.
  • As a facilitator, you can share your screen (desktop) and even give control to a participant. So you can have somebody else “drive” the session for you.
