Adobe Connect for Text Meetings

Adobe Connect is a text-based communication format. It takes place in the LifeRing Chat Room where you use your device (computer, tablet, or smartphone) to read text messages on a screen and to post a message with a keyboard. Meeting days and times are posted here: Online Meeting Schedule. There are currently three meetings that use the Adobe Connect interface.

 

If joining from a computer

  • Open your browser and use this URL for the Adobe Connect LifeRing meeting: https://meet56243352.adobeconnect.com/r3gtmlgthvp/
  • Your browser will open up to the Adobe Connect screen. "Enter as a Guest” selection. Type in your chat name and Adobe Connect will open up a new window where your meeting will take place. 
  • If you are new or Adobe has updated their meeting software, you may be asked to download “Adobe Connect Add-in”. 
  • This should automatically be made available to install. Please install it if asked. It’s a quick install over most internet connections.
