If you don't have a Connect account that you can use, you can create a 30-day free trial from Adobe. In fact, even if you do have a corporate Connect account that you're learning to use, it might be a good idea to set this trial account up because it's going to give you a place that you can work without worrying that you might mess up your corporate account. And it's a clean slate like the clean slate that I'm starting with here in this training. So let's go ahead and set one of those up. I am going to click on products here at Adobe.com. This is just the standard Adobe.com web site.
Among the products if I scroll down, I'll see Adobe Connect, and there is a lot of information that you might want to take a look at here. I'm specifically interested in the Sign up for a 30 day trial link. So I'll click that. If you have an Adobe ID, which is an email address and a password, then you can go ahead and plug that information in here. If you don't, you can go through the process of creating one by clicking over here. Either way, you will need one to create a 30-day free trial. Once I've clicked on that link, the first step is to go ahead and add an email.
That will be my login or my username, and then create a password, plus there is a variety of information that Adobe is looking for understand why I'm interested in Connect. Now I am not going to make you watch me fill all of this stuff in here. But I'll just scroll down and say that once you do, you click on accept the terms and click on Submit. The next thing that will happen is that Adobe will send you an email with your 30-day free trial information in it. I've got that email open over here. So we'll jump over to this tab and here it is.
The three things that I am looking for are my Account URL. That's the URL that I am going to use as the base URL for everything that I do in Connect from here on now. Also, I'll find my username and password that I can use to log in to the account. So to log in to the account, I am simply going to click the link here. You'll go ahead and add your username and password and click Login.
The first time you do it, Adobe wants to know that you understand the terms of the service. If you'd like to scroll through this and read this-- you should always do this whenever you're agreeing to something-- but I've already read it several times. So I am simply going to click Yes and click Submit, and I'll enter the Adobe Connect dashboard, and this is where I'll begin everything. And one more alert dialog box to go through. This is just an Expiration Notification that Adobe is providing to let you know that the account is scheduled to expire. I'll say that Don't Remind Me Again, because I can remember that.
At this point, you are setup, you are ready to go, and you are ready to complete the rest of the training.
