Create a Meeting @ PennState Adobe Connect Meeting Space in a Course

If you are an instructor of a Canvas course, you can create a Meeting @ PennState Adobe Connect meeting space in your course.

An Adobe Connect meeting space can be used for synchronous group meetings, resident and blended course activities, training and tutoring sessions, office hours, and student team meetings. Each session can be recorded.

This tool is an alternative to a Big Blue Button meeting, a tool built into Canvas. Recordings made through Adobe Connect persist, while Big Blue Button recordings are available only for a period of two weeks after creation.

Once you add an Adobe Connect meeting space to a course, you can add in the students you want to join the meeting, or you can make the meeting public so that anyone can join.

Note: Students do not have the capability to create Adobe Connect meetings, but they can create Big Blue Button meetings.
