Our campus now has a new way for you to meet, collaborate and share information with anyone from around the world from virtually any device. It’s called Adobe Connect and it allows you to share your computer screen; create whiteboards; use text, audio and video chat; and much more all through your web browser window. Since the service is provided as a common good (there’s no direct cost for using the service), it can replace paid alternatives like WebEx and GoToMeeting.
All you need to start using the service is a standard web browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari and a current version of Adobe Flash. Flash is one of the most popular browser plugins and comes preinstalled on most computers. You login at https://meeting.colorado.edu/ with your CU Login name and IdentiKey password; your meeting attendees only need an invitation from you to participate. Interested meeting hosts need to submit a request at the OIT online form in order to be a meeting host, as the default role is participant only in Adobe Connect meetings. Once your request is approved, you can create a meeting room, manage attendees, access past meetings and shared files all through an easy-to-navigate dashboard.
The Adobe Connect service page provides more information about the service and its benefits.
You can find step-by-step instructions for using the service on the Adobe Connect Help pages.
