Getting Started with Adobe Connect *updated on April 3

Updated on April 3rd, 2020.

This information was created for current and new students enrolled at LaSalle College Vancouver during the Spring 2020 quarter. You will find below the step-by-step guide on how to connect to your Adobe Connect online learning platform.

How do I log in to Adobe Connect?

1- You'll receive a message from your instructors via MIO with a link to access the virtual classes for each of your courses.

You do not need to continually receive a link each week to enter your Adobe Connect class. After you have attended one class, you will need to simply click on the link at the appointed class time each week and it should take you straight into the classroom as a ‘Guest’ every time. Just make sure you always choose the APP option and NOT the browser option for downloading, whenever presented with the choice.

2- Click on the classroom link for your course and open the link. (Ideally using Chrome as your browser for a better experience).

3- Choose "GUEST" and enter your first and last name. Then click on the "Enter Room" button.

4- You have now arrived to your class! Click on "Open Adobe Connect" to get started.

Note that the class name does not appear in the top left corner of the Adobe Connect classroom screen. This is because the license for each class link is for each individual instructor and not for each individual class, therefore the name of the class is not present on the screen. The instructor should let their students know the name and time of the class when they send the link to their students.

TIP: Before continuing, make sure you are in the right class by checking the number at the top left of the screen.

How do I use the platform?

1- In the “Meeting” drop-down menu at the top left, complete the “Audio Setup Wizard”. This will allow you to hear the person speaking and it will also allow them to hear you once the session has started.

2- You can raise your hand by clicking on the 'raising hand' icon in the top left side of the screen. This will give you access to a drop-down menu which enables you to interact with your instructor.

3- Access the conversation so that you can interact (by chatting) with your teacher during your class.

4- Use your microphone:

  • The presenter must activate and give you access to the microphone.
  • When the microphone icon appears next to your name, click the icon at the top of your screen and select “Connect my audio”.
  • When both icons (microphone and speaker) are GREEN, you can talk!

5- The instructor has the ability to nominate any of their students to be a presenter in the class. This gives the student the ability to share their screen and speak to everyone in the class at once.
