Most web browsers support Adobe Connect using Adobe Flash Player 13.0+. Android and iOS apps are available on compatible devices although these may limit participation within sessions. Headphones or speakers are required to hear the presenter. Please make sure to test your device in advance of the beginning of each session by using the Audio Setup Wizard...
Full technical specifications for Adobe Connect are available at https://helpx.adobe.com/adobe-connect/tech-specs.html. Please note that some browsers will request the installation of the Adobe Connect launcher application, although it may be possible to connect to the session directly within your web browser using the link http://heriot-watt.adobeconnect.com/scholarhomework/?launcher=false.
If any problems are experienced while connecting to the Adobe Connect session, follow the 'troubleshooting page' link in the message that appears after following the SCHOLAR session link; this should fix the problem and establish a connection. If the 'troubleshooting page' link is not available or does not fix the problem, try uninstalling the Adobe Connect launcher application from your device (if applicable) before attempting to join the session again and reinstalling the application, if required, or try using the 'launcher=false' link.
