About Adobe Connect

Adobe Connect is a web-based communication system that allows users to meet, share, and collaborate at a distance from their desktops. One of the key advantages of this system is that it demands very little of end-users: only a standard web browser and one or more free Adobe plug-ins are required to participate in Adobe Connect meetings.

Participants in Adobe Connect meetings are able to utilize the following features:

  • Real-time video
  • Integrated voice-over-IP (VOIP) audio
  • Text chat
  • Document sharing
  • Collaborative editing
  • Polling
  • Remote desktop control
  • Record, edit, and playback meetings
  • Break out rooms

Faculty and staff at Northern Illinois University and our partner sites have used this system to consult with students, conduct dissertation meetings, attend official meetings at a distance, meet with clients, collaborate on design and research projects, and deliver one-to-one or small group instruction.
