About Adobe Connect
Can anyone use Adobe Connect?
Adobe Connect is available to students, faculty and staff of Loyola University Chicago. Guests may be invited to participate in a meeting, but only if invited by a host.
How do I log in to Adobe Connect?
To access Adobe Connect, visit https://connect.luc.edu and login with your Loyola Network ID and password. If you are a guest accessing the system, click the link provided by the meeting host. If applicable, enter the username and password (and/or passcode) provided by the host.
What if I forgot my password?
If you do not remember your Loyola password or are having trouble accessing your account, please review the Information Technology Services "Password Support" page by visiting http://www.luc.edu/its/pam.shtml. This page will contain the information and steps necessary to reset your password, as well as contact information for the Help Desk.
Is Adobe Connect compatible with mobile devices?
In most cases, yes. Most tablets are included in the list of mobile devices capable of accessing Adobe Connect, and these tablets are able to share documents and presentations from an Adobe Connect Server. Additionally, hosts may change meeting layout, use the whiteboard, and draw on slides. To check mobile compatibility, please consult our Software and Hardware section below.
How do I create a meeting room?
To create a meeting room, please review the Hosting Meetings page for more information.
Can I re-use the same meeting room?
Yes, once you create a meeting room, you can use it as many times as you like. It will be available at the assigned URL until you choose to delete it.
Is there a limit on how many people can attend a meeting?
There is a limit of 1500 individual users per meeting room. With one host running the meeting, an additional 1499 participants or presenters may be in the room before capacity will be reached and no additional users may enter.
Is there a limit on how much I can upload to Adobe Connect?
Adobe Connect permits uploads up to 100MB. Uploads larger than this size may fail during the upload process. It is important to take into consideration your end user when uploading documents for users to download. A 100MB file can take a considerable amount of time for a user with DSL internet speeds or slower to download.
Can I record a meeting in Adobe Connect?
Yes, Adobe Connect meetings can be recorded and saved for playback. Since Adobe Connect records the events rather than just static screenshots, participants or those unable to attend the meeting can play the recording in whatever size they would like and use some of the interactive features that a typical participant would have been able to manipulate.
Can I download archives (recordings) of my meetings and publish them elsewhere (e.g. on my own web server) or distribute them for offline viewing?
Yes, Adobe Connect meetings can be recorded and shared with people who do not have access to the Adobe Connect server. To do this, you must create an offline version of the recording, which is saved as a single FLV file. Once you have finished creating the FLV file, you can use any internet browser to navigate to the location of your file. Please be aware of participant privacy rights and content disclosed in the meeting prior to making potential recordings available for public access.
Can a non-Loyola colleague join a meeting?
Yes, anyone (Loyola affiliated or not) can join a meeting that is configured to accept guests as participants. This configuration is at the meeting hosts discretion, hosts have three (3) options when configuring the meeting:
Option 1 - "Only registered users may enter the room (guest access is blocked)"
Option 2 - "Only registered users and accepted guests may enter the room"
Option 3 - "Anyone who has the URL for the meeting can enter the room"
In addition to these three settings, hosts may optionally setup and require a passcode, which both registered and guest participants would need to enter before gaining access to a room.
