Using Layouts & Pods

Adobe Connect uses a variety of panels called pods that make up the layout of the meeting. The default layouts are three:
  • Sharing
  • Discussion
  • Collaboration
You can also create your own customized layout by arranging the pods differently (see section on pods)

  • Share pod: in the center, a large area for presentation or sharing of screens
  • Video pod : top right to show the attendees webcams
  • Attendees pod: center right to show the list of the attendees joining the meeting
