What is Adobe Connect?

Adobe Connect is an enterprise web conferencing solution for online meetings, eLearning, and webinars. It is based on Adobe Flash technology, so you can deliver rich interactions that participants can join easily with a Penn State Access Account or a Friends of Penn State (FPS) Account.

What do I need to use Adobe Connect?

To join a meeting, log in with your Penn State Access Account, Friends of Penn State (FPS) Account, or as a guest. Faculty, staff, and students can use their access account while people not otherwise affiliated with the University must create a FPS account at or log in as a guest.

To create new meeting rooms, you must have a license. All Penn State faculty and staff who have a faculty or staff affiliation listed in LDAP will be given a license upon logging into the system at Students who would like a meeting room should contact a faculty or staff member who can create a meeting room for your use, or contact the ITS Help Desk describing your need. Anyone not listed with a faculty or staff affiliation should contact the ITS Help Desk.
