Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro

An Adobe Connect meeting can be used to connect virtually with another person. You can create one meeting room and use it for all of your Adobe Connect meetings, or you could create a new meeting room for specific events.

There are several important things to note about your Adobe Connect meeting room:

  • As the host of the room, only you are able to open your meeting. Participants with your meeting room URL will not be able to access the room until you open it to them.
