There are a few high quality resources for Adobe Connect that we have found useful. They are, in no particular order, the following:

1. Adobe TV ( Adobe TV has a lot of video tutorials for Getting Started with Adobe Connect as well as other more advanced tutorials.  These videos are only a few minutes in length which is great for quick reminders.  Adobe TV is free to everyone and does not require a login or a Penn State Access Account. There are tutorials available not only for Adobe Connect but many of Adobe Inc. other products as well.

2. ( is a web based video tutorial service that has a site license agreement with the University. Any faculty, staff, or student with a valid Penn State Access Account has the ability to view any training video at no charge. The Adobe Connect tutorials from consist of 11 sections of training and range from beginner to advanced user. This training is recommended for anyone consistently using Adobe Connect.

3. Adobe Connect 8 Online Documentation (  This written documentation is very helpful and much easier to follow than the user manual listed below. 

4. Adobe Connect 8 User Manual ( This a lengthy 219 page manual for every aspect of Adobe Connect 8. This manual is written very well with clear instructions but we recommended this for only more advanced users.
