Adobe Connect Technical Requirements

For desktop machines and laptops, Adobe Connect will run on all modern web browsers with the Adobe Flash plugin installed. If you don't have Flash, Adobe Connect will prompt you to install the Adobe Connect Add-in plugin.

Android and iOS apps are available to install on compatible devices.

Add-in versus Browser

In most browsers, you will be prompted to download and run the add-in.

If you wish to use the browser window rather than the add-in, use this link: https://heriot-watt.adobeconnect.com/scholartutorsessions/?launcher=false.

Watching a recording? Simply add "/?launcher=false" to the end of the link provided for the recording to launch it in the browser window.

Using Google Chrome

If you are using the newest version of Chrome, you may be unable to run Adobe Connect in your browser and may be forced to access the room via the add-in. If this is the case (and you would rather use a browser), please use an alternative browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.
