Adobe Connect - students

Adobe Connect

Adobe Connect is a Flash based online meeting service that enables participants to collaborate using video, audio, application sharing and chat on any internet browser. 

Adobe has all of the standard participant tools such as handraise, polling, private and public chat, video, audio and screen sharing.  In addition you can record the sessions and breakout rooms are available.

All Adobe Connect users are advised to use headsets rather than desk microphones (or built-in microphones) as this reduces feedback.

We do not recommend hosting a session using a mobile device as the reduced functionality can cause problems with pod and content management.

We are currently running Adobe 9.2 which has the following system requirements:


  • 1.4GHz Intel® Pentium® 4 or faster processor (or equivalent) for Microsoft® Windows® XP, Windows 7 or Windows 8
  • Windows 8.1 (32-bit/64-bit), Windows 8 (32-bit/64-bit), Windows 7 (32-bit/64-bit), Windows XP
