The world's most flexible, live virtual classroom solution (Adobe® Connect™) meets the world's most popular LMS (Moodle®) in a seamless integration from Refined Data Solutions!

Users can enter Adobe Connect meetings, launch Presenter and Captivate presentations and watch event recordings with a single click from inside of Moodle!

Connect-2-Moodle provides a Single Sign On (SSO) environment in which information passes effortlessly in both directions between the two platforms so users cannot tell where Moodle ends and Adobe Connect begins.






You can drop in anytime.

This product is a simple drop-in to any existing Moodle (version 2.3 or higher) and consists of a number of components including modules, blocks and authentication plugins. No changes are required to any core Moodle files and in order to activate the integration you will be instructed to create an account on Refined Services and update your users and courses accordingly.
Installation and configuration typically take about an hour to complete. Our code is provided as a series of plugins that can be installed directly from the Moodle interface. Installation instructions are provided as a READ ME file once the plugin is downloaded or our experts can assist via a screen share.

Connect-2-Moodle vs Free Integration on Moodle Website
Think the free integration tool available on the Moodle website has all the functionality you need? Think again! Connect-2-Moodle is in a league of its own.
The most obvious difference:
The SSO associated with the free integrator doesn't work with Adobe SaaS Hosted Accounts (which represent the majority of Adobe deployments). Our Connect-2- Moodle plugin works seamlessly with both licensed and hosted Adobe Connect platforms.
Connect-2-Moodle is fully supported by the world's foremost experts on Adobe Connect. Our solution is guaranteed to work out of the box.






Connect-2-Moodle possesses all of the functionality of the free integrator PLUS the following:


Ability to link to a meeting independent of a Moodle activity.
Direct links to Adobe content (Presenter, Captivate, etc).
Iconic display of links that dynamically change based on the type of content.
Pulling back the time, phone details, title, and description for Adobe meetings, displaying them dynamically within Moodle.
"My Meetings" displays a list of each users upcoming meetings.
"My Recordings" display a list of all recordings available in a course.
Personalization filters (i.e. personalized greetings and content).
Authentication plugin - creates a Moodle account from an Adobe login, and vice-versa (free integrator only creates an Adobe account for the user).
Ability to set Adobe Connect as the master for authentication.
Ability to update the profile fields from Moodle to Adobe (address, company, title, phone, etc).
Group based permissions for easy changes.
Connect Activities - scheduling reminders and post event emails based on a meeting (replaces Adobe Events).
Reports time spent in a meeting, in a recording, results on a quiz, slides watched and allows creation of a Moodle grade based on these milestones.
Linking of Connect events with the Moodle calendar.
Link existing Moodle users with any existing Connect user.
New Moodle users result in new Connect users automatically.
Support for external authentication (e.g. LDAP, CASS etc.).
Sophisticated caching of Connect data to maximize performance. Many times faster than the free module.
Create new Connect meetings from Moodle.
Create recurring Connect meetings from Moodle.
Auto creation and synchronization between Moodle courses and Connect groups.
Auto synchronization between Moodle course enrollments and Connect group membership.
Full international time zone support for Connect event and calendar features inside of Moodle.
Synchronization of the Moodle and Connect user databases (Moodle becomes the master database).
Auto reporting of recent Connect meeting attendance from within Moodle.
Auto redirect to most recent Connect meeting recordings if meeting room is empty.


As you can see, Connect-2-Moodle is a significantly more powerful integration tool than the free one available on the Moodle website, or anything available on the market today! To find out more, please contact one of our sales representatives.
