Adobe Connect: Meeting Room Layouts

In a Adobe Connect meeting, a layout is a specific arrangement of display panels called pods. Instructors are the Adobe Connect meeting hosts who have the rights to manage the meeting layout.  There are three prebuilt meeting room layouts: Sharing, Discussion, and Collaboration.

Sharing: The Sharing layout contains all of the pods to quickly and easily share with meeting attendees a presentation, a video, a screen, or application from your computer, and any other content. The Sharing layout contains the following pods which are on the Stage and available to all attendees: Share, Camera and Voice, Attendee List, Chat, and Note.

Sharing Layout

Discussion: In the Discussion layout, the Chat, Discussion Notes, and Poll pods take center stage to facilitate discussion in a meeting. The Discussion pod contains the following meeting room pods: Attendee List, Camera and Voice, Chat, Discussion Notes, Note, Poll, and Share.

Discussion Layout

Collaboration: The Collaboration layout contains the pods that you use to work interactively with other meeting attendees: the Whiteboard, Chat, and File Sharing pods. It also contains the following meeting room pods: Camera and Voice, Attendee List, Chat, Note, and Screen Sharing.
