Adobe Connect

Adobe Connect is a web conferencing program that enables users to hold web meetings and webinars. With Adobe Connect, uses can captivate audiences with engaging, interactive experiences and make them available to virtually anyone, anywhere, on almost any device. Adobe Connect is based on Adobe Flash® technology and the Adobe Flash Player software is already installed on most Internet-connected computers. Adobe Connect allows invitees to easily attend meetings without the need for additional downloads.
