Using an interface built on the Flash player, Adobe Connect integrates several tools into an online meeting room, including video conferencing, live polling, chat, whiteboards, desktop sharing, and file sharing. These tools can be used in any combination to facilitate the meeting you wish to hold.

Adobe Connect can host live, interactive meetings; serve as a forum for presentations; or act as a video conferencing system. Connect can be a valuable tool for collaboration, allowing many people to be in conference without requiring them to leave the resources of their offices. Connect also streamlines scheduling and automates invitations to meetings, making the task of setting up a meeting much easier.
In order to use Adobe Connect you will need a browser, the Flash Player plug-in, and an internet connection.
