Adobe Connect now enabled in Canvas

Meeting@Penn State, powered by Adobe Connect, is now ready for use in Canvas. Adobe Connect allows faculty to set up meeting space within their Canvas courses to be used for synchronous group meetings, resident and blended course activities, training and tutoring sessions, office hours, and student team meetings. Each session can be recorded.

This tool is an alternative to BigBlueButton meetings, which are already available in Canvas. Recordings made through Adobe Connect are lasting, while BigBlueButton recordings are available for a period of two weeks after creation.


With Adobe Connect enabled in a Canvas course, you can create a meeting room or add an existing meeting. For detailed instructions on how to enable Adobe Connect meetings in Canvas, please visit the ITS Knowledge Base article at
