Web conferencing for ETSU faculty and staff
Adobe Connect is a web-based conferencing software used to share information and host meetings over the internet. It can be used to collaborate via chat, microphone, or webcam. Applications such as Microsoft PowerPoint can be easily shared, and entire meetings can be recorded.
Adobe Connect is freely available to all ETSU faculty and staff. Any faculty and staff can obtain a username and password to create and manage meetings.
Once those meetings are created, anyone in the world can access them from any computer connected to the internet.
Visitors accessing the meetings do not need to be affiliated with ETSU. Anyone can attend a meeting.

Some time ago, Chrome's Flash Player integration was changed, and this created an incompatibility with the Adobe Connect add-in (which is necessary for many of the features within Connect). It is recommended that you use another browser, like Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari, when hosting or participating in Adobe Connect meetings.
If you are an adamant Chrome user, and would like to get it to work with Adobe Connect, then there is a way. You have to change Chrome's default Flash plug-in configuration. It is relatively easy to do, but we only recommend it for those users who are comfortable with doing basic troubleshooting, as changing your browser's default configuration could lead to future incompatibilities.
