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.

    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?

    Hello guys,

    I'm facing an issue. When I use a special char, like "ç or ã", I receive the following error:
    "Unable to connect to the Adobe Connect Pro server at this time. Click continue to proceed to the activity settings page and test the connection"

    But if I create it without this extended ascii characters, everything works fine.

    Is it a bug or a normal behavior?

    If it's a bug, is there a workaround?

    The version that I'm using is: 2015110901

    Dear community, with the new GDPR plugin there is a way to see personal Data what is saved in the Database. For external Plugins such Adobe connect there is no explanation. Could you please tell me if personal Data is saved with the adobe connect plugin? Best regards

    Hi we are using moodle 2.7 and we have integrated Adobe host license with moodle, problem is once Adobe connection has been established in moodle after some time or after creating few meetings the Adobe service get disconnected in moodle. We get an email from adobe that "Login for your Adobe Connect account has been temporarily suspended as you have made too many incorrect login attempts."
    Don't know why this keep happening i have to reset my Adobe password to establish new connection, and we are entering correct id and passwrod in moodle.

    I encountered an issue installing moodle-mod_adobeconnect (latest version of the plugin 3.4 on the repository) on moodle 3.6 :

    When I initialize phpunit (php admin/tool/phpunit/cli/init.php) I encountered a problem with the plugin :
    error message says : Capability 'mod/adobeconnect:meetingpresenter' was not found !

    My question, as mentioned also by Cumali YAŞAR's message, is that I would like to know when the Abode Connect plugin is going to be available and fully functional for Moodle 3.6 ?
    Or if the bug is going to be fixed at some point for the 3.6 version of Moodle ?

    Best regards,

    I can create the meeting, but without the user's permission.

    After investigation I find a solution to my issue :

    I installed Adobeconnect (MOODLE_34_STABLE) from their github repository on an instance of moddle 3.6 and removed the body of the method called in the install.php from the adobeconnect folder.

    I just left in install.php : function xmldb_adobeconnect_install() {global $DB;}
    And moved the code in settings.php of the plugin and also added a condition to only check once at install :

    //Install for Adobeconnect
    $param = array('shortname' => 'adobeconnectpresenter');
    $mrole = $DB->get_record('role', $param);

    if (!$mrole){
    <> }

    And now When I initialize phpunit with (php admin/tool/phpunit/cli/init.php) - all unitary tests are rolling fine and plugin is working properly.

    @Cumali YAŞAR - if this can help you.
