The Remote Learner Adobe Connect Pro activity module provides the officially sponsored integration method between Moodle and Adobe Connect Pro. It was developed in conjunction with the Remote-Learner development team and Adobe Inc. It is designed to simplify the use of synchronous events within Moodle. It provides a single sign on between the two systems with easy event creation and management.

The module allows users to create Adobe Connect Pro meetings by adding an activity instance and providing the meeting name, url (optional), start time, end time, meeting template and a public or private meeting setting.

There is also support for Moodle groups so that users who are only a part of a group can join meetings that are only for their Moodle group.

Any user who creates or joins a meeting will have their account created on the Adobe Connect server (if one doesn't exist) and they will be signed in automatically using HTTP header authentication. So as long as the user is logged into Moodle they will never have to enter in user credentials to get access to an Adobe Connect meeting.

This module creates 3 roles: Adobe Connect Host, Presenter and Participant in Moodle to reflect the roles on the Adobe Connect server. Users can be assigned these roles through Moodle and they will have the corresponding roles on the Adobe Connect server when they join.

The activity module will also display meeting recordings (if there are any) that are available.


Disclaimer:  If you have a Adobe Connect Pro hosted account the single sign-on or external authentication will not work; as Adobe has disabled external authentication for hosted account.

    @Dirk it is not possible to externally authenticate with hosted Adobe accounts. It can only be done with self-hosted Connect Pro servers. See official statement: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/connect/8.0/webservices/WS5b3ccc516d4fbf351e63e3d11a171ddf77-7ff5_SP1.html#WS5b3ccc516d4fbf351e63e3d11a171dcf95-7ffc_SP1

    Regarding the error you are receiving, confirm whether your Connect Pro is using HTTPS or not and toggle the appropriate setting. Also try changing the port setting to 443. Lastly have a look at this blog post http://blogs.adobe.com/connectsupport/using-the-xml-api-with-enhanced-security/ as this plug-in was tested against an old version of Connect Pro (7.5). Hope this helps.

    Do any of you have a copious amount of data in the table "mdl_adobeconnect_quiz_attempts"? Why is that table getting populated with over a 1000 duplicate rows when a user watches an Adobe Connect activity for about an hour?

    Hi Hamed, we tested mod_adobeconnect with PHP 7 and didn't find any problems.

    Hi Brian, that table isn't from this plugin.

    Tyler, I apologize. I thought the Adobe Connect activity plugin that was installed in our system was created by Remote Learner. Instead, it came from Envisiontel. Here is a link to a repository that has Adobe Connect activity module source code written by Envisiontel. I am going to talk to my hosting provider about this.

    It is insane how many issues people are having with adobe connect! For such a huge company you'd think they'd have everything sorted out by now.

    Hi! I purchased a license for Adobe Connect Meeting. Just 1 virtual classroom. Does this plugin work for this type of license? I cannot find any information about what's the difference between Adobe Connect and Adobe Connect Pro.

    Hi Folks

    We are in on Moodle 3.1 here - just wondering if anyone has come across this issue - When we import an Adobe Connect Activity from one course to another we get an error saying the Activity is on not the server, has onyone come across this error before?

    Thanks
    Conor.
