Adobe Connect Pro

Adobe Connect delivers high-impact online communications that everyone can access instantly. Connect lets users easily share engaging multimedia communications in real-time meetings or through narrated on-demand presentations that can be viewed anytime. And, because content is created using familiar office productivity tools, anyone can use Connect to communicate more effectively over the web.

Why should I use Adobe Connect? You can save a lot of travel time and expense. Adobe Connect is free to use for ANR staff and faculty and has proven to be remarkably reliable.  Anyone can participate in a Adobe Connect meeting. Only the Host needs to be part of the Adobe Connect system to setup a meeting. You can invite anyone with a computer and Internet connection to join you. The only software needed is a browser.

The UCD Adobe Connect Enterprise Server supports Adobe Connect meetings, presentations, and training. The events and seminar features are not part of the UCD Adobe Connect system.
