Welcome to Hālāwai

Hālāwai (Hawaiian for meeting) is a web based conferencing tool that ITS (Information Technology Services) has licensed for the University of Hawaii community. It enables presenters to share their computer screens, applications, and files as well as broadcast live audio (and video) directly from their computer desktop to other participants on the Internet. Hālāwai has been commonly used to hold administrative meetings, small group collaborations, as well as an enhancement to face-to-face and/or web-based classes. Hālāwai is based on Adobe Connect Meeting.

*If you will be sharing your desktop, controlling other users’ screens, or uploading files to a meeting, you will need to download/install this specific Adobe Connect Add-In plugin:
http://www.hawaii.edu/halawai/addin_win_r97.zip (Win)
http://www.hawaii.edu/halawai/addin_mac_r97.z (Mac)

The (old) version of the Adobe Connect Add-In plugin that is provided on the Adobe Connect Downloads page and on the connection test page no longer works. NOTE: You can still attend a meeting without the Adobe Connect Add-In plugin. If your meeting doesn't start up or the newly opened Connect window seems to hang, try installing the new Adobe Connect Add-In plugin then entering the meeting again.

**Firefox ESR is recommended for use with our current version of Hālāwai (Adobe Connect): https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/
