This course may be using Adobe Connect for online meetings.
Adobe Connect allows screen sharing, voice, and video communication. A headset with earphones and a microphone is recommended for audio conferencing; attempting to use the external speakers and microphone built into your computer or laptop may cause feedback. A web camera is required for video conference; however, we may not be using this feature. Please take the time now to familiarize yourself with Adobe Connect and test your system configuration.
Adobe has a version of Connect for most mobile platforms. You can find these at the appropriate online application store for your device. Mobile versions have limited capabilities, but are suitable for listening, watching, and commenting during a live session.

Leaving a Meeting
To leave a meeting, simply close the computer window containing the meeting room. On a Windows computer, click the red X in the upper right corner of the window. On a Mac, click the red circle in the upper left of the window.
The content of an Adobe Connect meeting room does not change when anyone (including the host) leaves. The only part of the room that changes dynamically is the list of attendees currently present in the room. For additional help, consult the Adobe Connect Quick Start Guide.
