Adobe Connect Pro

Three people using Adobe Connect Pro


Adobe Connect Pro is a web conferencing solution for online meetings and webinars used by education, business, and government agencies. It is based on the Adobe Flash technology already installed on virtually all Internet-connected computers, making it possible to engage in powerful synchronous interaction without cumbersome downloads. Joining a meeting is as easy as entering the room’s URL in a browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari.



Adobe Connect Pro has full functionality on both Windows and Mac computers, and applications are available to access meetings from Android smartphones, iPhones, & iPads.

To test your computer's compatibility with the software and/or to install the Adobe Connect Add-in, go to this Compatibility Link.

Visit an example Adobe Connect Pro meeting room to see some of the functions available with Adobe Connect Pro. 

Prior to joining an ACP virtual event, review the Technical Requirements.
