Participant FAQs

What do I need to participate?
Participants only need a Flash-enabled web browser and an Internet connection to attend these online sessions.

How do I attend an Adobe Connect conference?
The invitation you receive should include a web address that begins with desktopconnect.ku.edu. When you click on the link provided in the invitation you will be asked to login with either your KU Online ID or as a guest. The host controls who can enter the session.

What can I do in the meeting room?
The meeting host determines your level of participation. By default you should be able to view and hear the presentation, and raise your hand (by pushing a button) if you have a question. You can also ask questions through the chat pod. The meeting host can grant you permission to do additional tasks if needed.

Where can I get more details about how to participate?
