Adobe Connect Resources
Select the links on the left to view helpful Adobe Connect resources.
Adobe Connect, formerly Macromedia Breeze, is your source for web conferencing and online presentations at MATC. As a MATC faculty member, you can utilize this technology without additional licensing fees or software. All you need is a computer and access to the Internet.
Prior to scheduling a web conference, follow the steps to properly download the Adobe Connect Software here.
Setting Up a Web Conference 1. Contact Vicki Sahr (email@example.com) at Fox Valley Technical College to receive an Adobe Connect Login. If you already have an Adobe Connect login, contact Vicki to schedule a meeting time for Adobe Connect. Note: all Adobe Connect meetings are set up through Vicki at FVTC.
Include the following in your meeting request:
Title of the meeting
Date of meeting
Meeting start time
Meeting end time
Estimated number of participants
2. Once the meeting is scheduled, you will receive a URL (web link) to access the meeting using your Internet Browser. As the meeting host, you will log in to the meeting using your Adobe Connect Login.
3. To Invite participants to your meeting give each attendee the meeting URL that was sent to you by Vicki at FVTC. Participants can log in as a “Guest.” Upon doing so, they will have access to your meeting (no password is needed for participants). Your students will simply enter their name and it will be displayed within the list of attendees while in the meeting.
During the Web Conference As the host, you have the option to share items with others in your meeting. To do so, select the type of item that you would like to share from the “What do you want to share?” menu on your screen. You can choose to share your computer screen, document (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.), or whiteboard. (See Adobe Connect Article for more information).
