Click here to join the call.

How to participate on the call:

You will be able to hear the audio when you join Adobe Connect, but in order to actively participate you must deliberately join your phone line. After you join the Adobe Connect platform, you will be prompted to select an audio option. You can either:

  • Have the system call you (preferred method): When you first enter the meeting room during the scheduled time, enter your phone number and let the Adobe system call you. You will then be prompted to press a number to join the meeting.
  • Dial in to the audio conference manually: When you first enter the meeting room during the scheduled meeting time, you will see a menu box with an option to dial in to the audio conference via phone. Select that option and dial in using the number and code provided. You MUST enter an additional code after connecting with the passcode so that the system ties your computer to your audio line. You must scroll down to see your unique code. Your unique code will appear after the following statement: “Once joined to the audio, identify yourself:”
