Adobe Connect

Adobe Connect is a web conferencing solution that enables a variety of uses, ranging from web meetings to eLearning to webinars. With Adobe Connect, you can captivate your audience with engaging, and interactive experiences and make them available to virtually anyone, anywhere, on almost any device, with just a click of a button. Adobe Connect is based on Adobe Flash® technology and Adobe Flash Player software is already installed on virtually all Internet-connected computers. So, Adobe Connect allows invitees to easily attend your meetings without the need for additional downloads.

Requirements to use Adobe Connect

Today, there is a growing need to collaborate with customers, partners, and colleagues in multiple locations, across different hardware platforms and operating systems, on networks with varying bandwidth capacities, in real time and asynchronously. Adobe Connect makes all this possible using the most basic of equipment.

- A MAC or PC connected via a wired Internet connection

- A mobile device connected via the Internet with the Adobe Connect Mobile application Installed

- A Logitech USB Headset

- A Logitec webcam or system with built-in camera (Optional)
