  3. In the General settings, enter an 'Activity name'.

  5. In most cases, the other settings can remain by default. However, if you do not want the External Tool to show in the Grades section of your unit (recommended), expand the Privacy settings and uncheck the 'Accept grades from this tool' option (the other options must remain checked):
    AC no accept grades option
  6. Click the 'Save and return to unit' button to finish.

You should now see a link to the Adobe Connect activity in your unit and you can now create meeting rooms.
