There are three main roles you can have in a meeting: a meeting host, presenter or participant.
The Host can perform the following tasks:
- Set up meetings, invite guests, approve guests, put rooms on hold or end them
- Add or edit layouts
- Promote and demote attendees
- Switch to preparing mode to create or edit layouts for a different presentation
- Show slides and content, share screens, broadcast audio and video, and change the meeting room properties
- Control participant audio and video broadcast
- Record the meeting room
The Presenter can perform the following tasks:
- Show slides and content, and share screens
- Chat, answer questions, and broadcast live audio and video
The Participant can perform the following tasks:
- View and participate in a meeting
- View the content being shown, hear and see the presenter's audio and video broadcast, use text chat, take polls, and download files
- If given permission, broadcast their own audio and video
- If given permission, control specific pods where access has been granted
There is no limit for a meeting, however the University is currently licensed for 200 simultaneous or concurrent users of Adobe Connect. Therefore, we can support two meetings of 100 users running at the same time, or five meetings of 40 users, and so on. Once there are 200 users using Adobe Connect, no additional users will be able to join a current meeting.
Adobe Connect works best on at least a broadband internet connection. The more participants in a meeting, the more bandwidth intensive the meeting becomes. The tool will also limit an entire conference based on the participant with the lowest connection speed.
The conference quality for all participants will be limited by the participant with the slowest internet connection.
Those with a slow internet connection are able to pause the conference to conserve bandwidth whilst viewing video content. Hovering over the video from any site and selecting the pause icon will pause the video for that site and reduce the bandwidth used for that individual participant.
If a participant pauses their own camera it will pause the video from that camera at all sites and hence reduce the overall conference bandwidth.
Yes. Mobile devices with internet access such as smart phones and iPads can also be used to connect to an Adobe conference; however you may be required to download an Adobe Connect app on your device. Visit the Adobe website for a list of supported devices.
Go here to create a Meeting Room
Once you create a meeting room you can use it as many times as you like. It will be available at the assigned URL until you choose to delete it.
Yes. Anyone can join a meeting that is configured to accept guests as participants. This configuration is at the meeting hosts discretion who has these options:
1. Only registered users may enter the room (guest access is blocked).
2. Only registered users and accepted guests may enter the room.
3. Anyone who has the URL for the meeting can enter the room.
Options 2 and 3 both allow guests to join a meeting. In addition to these three settings, hosts may optionally setup and require a pass code, which both registered and guest participants would need to enter before gaining access to a room.
