Adobe Connect Web Conferencing Software

Adobe Connect provides a web conferencing setting for real-time meetings and online presentations for groups and classes. Audiences can see and hear meetings anytime, anywhere, through any standard web browser.   Adobe Connect classrooms are ideal for synchronous and hybrid courses.

Getting Started

  1. Request an Adobe Connect account by contacting the Office of Instructional Technology at moodle@uno.edu.
  2. Review the "Getting Started" instructions on Adobe Connnect's website. Be sure to use the "Test your computer" link and install any plug-ins Adobe requires in order for you to be able to share your screen and upload files to your students during classroom meetings in Adobe Connect.
  3. Learn how to set up and conduct class meetings with help from Adobe Connect's video library.
  4. Contact the Office of Instructional Technology at moodle@uno.edu or 504-280-5512 for assistance.

Logging in to Adobe Connect

Instructors and hosts log in to UNO's Adobe Connect site using their full UNO credentials (username@uno.edu), using the password they received upon creation of their Adobe Connect host account.

Students will be sent an invitation with a URL that will take them directly to their course's meeting room. There they should log in as a guest by entering their name and clicking to enter the room.

Adobe Connect Desktop Application

You can use Adobe Connect via the online interface at uno.adobeconnect.com, but you might also benefit by using the AC Desktop app on your computer instead. It offers some flexibility in creating recordings of your meeting, and in moving among various functions while in the meeting. If that is something you want to explore, you can download the desktop application, along with a required plugin called Adobe AIR, here: http://www.adobe.com/support/connect/downloads-updates.html#connect-extensions..
