Working with Meetings Working with Meetings

  1. Install Adobe Connect Add-in for Windows, Macintosh or Linux Operating Systems. The Adobe Connect Add-in allows you to share your screen and upload files to meetings.
  2. Test your computer to make sure that you are set up with all of the tools you will need to participate in the meeting.
  3. Create a Meeting
    From the Main Connect page (http://uweoconnect.extn.washington.edu):
    • Go to the upper Meetings tab.
    • Navigate to the folder where your Meeting should be located. UWEO courses should use Shared Meetings > UWEO Courses.
      NOTE: Access to your My Meetings folder within Connect is limited, which may cause issues with Meeting co-Host access and meeting recording movement.
    • Click the New Meeting button.
    • Check the Connect Meeting Schedule to ensure there is adequate space for your meeting at the time(s) you will have it. Send an e-mail to olsupport@pce.uw.edu with your Meeting times to prevent overbooking of Connect Meeting.
