Before the webinar

 

Check that you have everything you need to join an Adobe Connect webinar by using the Adobe Connect Connection Test.

The test checks that you have a supported version of Flash Player, a suitable internet connection and the Adobe Connect add-in.

If the test fails due to the Flash Player or Adobe Connect add-in it will ask if you wish to install these.

Adobe Connect can run on any browser however it appears that it runs best in the following browsers:

  • PC: Internet Explorer
  • Mac: Safari.
