Accessing Adobe Connect Sessions
At this time, Adobe Connect is not accessible through Canvas. More information will be available when it has been integrated into Canvas. If your instructor is having a Connect session, they will send a direct link to the class.
If you would like to set up an adobe connect meeting with your fellow group members, you should e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following info:
- your course number and section (i.e. LI815XA)
- your group name/number (if you have one)
- the names of your group members
- Date and time of your first meeting (minimum two business days notice is required).
Your group will be set up with a meeting room to use for the duration of the semester and you will all be given a designated host account name so that you will be able to hold meetings anytime throughout the semester at your convenience.
