Adobe Connect Seminar Room

The Adobe Connect Seminar Room integration allows for seamless creation of virtual meetings from within Cornerstone Learning using the Adobe Connect API. This vILT integration allows Learning Administrators to add instructors, and create and manage sessions from within Cornerstone. Adobe Connect sessions can be launched from Cornerstone directly into Adobe Connect.

When an instructor is selected for an Adobe Connect vILT session, the instructor is automatically designated as a host for the Adobe Connect session.

Use Case

  1. An administrator working inside the Learning Management System (LMS) is setting up webinar training that will be attended by the entire company. She creates the session inside the LMS and assigns an instructor. The assigned instructor is automatically designated as a host for the session.
  2. Because there will be over 100 attendees, she decides to use one of her company's licensed Seminar Rooms with Adobe Connect.
  3. One of the facilities inside of the LMS is mapped to the appropriate Seminar Room in Adobe Connect. The administrator makes sure that the location of the session is using a location with that facility so that the meeting will be held inside the Seminar Room.
  4. The webinar is assigned to the entire company and when it comes time for the session to start, the attendees launch the webinar directly from their transcripts and are taken directly into the Seminar Room inside of Adobe Connect.

Considerations

The Adobe Connect API does not support the passing back of attendance data from Adobe Connect to the LMS.

The system enables administrators to move an ILT session into a seminar room. However, seminar rooms must be created and managed within Adobe Connect.

Implementation

The Adobe Connect Seminar Room integration requires Cornerstone Learning and an Adobe Connect Seminar Room account.

This integration is available in the Edge Marketplace. Once the integration has been purchased, the functionality is not available until the integration is configured and enabled via Edge Integrations.
