Adobe Connect Software


 

Adobe Connect is a web conferencing software solution used by companies for conducting online meetings, webinars and training sessions. The solution is for adhoc collaboration as well as planned online meetings. The solution enables online audio and video collaboration across devices (including mobile platforms). Participants using desktops can join meetings without installing any software.

Adobe Connect Webinars offers features such as email integration and conference rooms that can be customized by users. The application also includes visualization tools such as polls, chat, whiteboards, and a console for mixing video streams for increasing participant engagement.

Adobe Connect has a web-based learning solution designed for interactive training. Presenters can monitor participant engagement, create persistent virtual classrooms, and integrate the software with an existing learning management system (LMS). Features such as games, quizzes, tests, and surveys allow businesses to use Adobe Connect in place of learning management system (LMS). Trainers can train employees directly from their mobile devices. The software is available for a limited period free trial.

Pros

This product is easy to use. It also integrates well with all of your other Adobe products. Faculty find that they are able to use this product without additional training.

Cons

What I don't care for about Adobe connect is that it is expensive for our budget. I find that there are similar products that will do 90% of what Adobe connect does, however, at a much lower cost.

Pros

Adobe Connect is a steady program with many features that simplify online conference calls and meetings. Screen sharing and recording is done easily and you can download the recordings in high quality. The call quality is clear and the speakers are easily understood.

Cons

Since it runs on flash, there can be issues on Chrome, and sometimes just won't run at all. I have to open it in another browser instead.

Pros

I used this product when I was working at LACOE. I like the ease of functionality when working with larger groups, it looks very professional almost as if you were in an actual classroom. Participants can easily raise their hands, ask questions, and interact with the presenter. The presenter options are robust and it's a great program overall.

Cons

There's a pretty large learning curve, so its best to have someone to teach you to use it or have a Lynda.com account.

The product may be a little hard to understand at first, there should be a better way to develop the user interface, should be more easy to understand and find what are you looking for.

I use Adobe most days for work. Overall the software is really good but very pricey comparing to other softwares in the market. Furthermore it's really hard to sync libraries and/or organize them intuitively.

Pros

These softwares work well with a lot of external plugins (i.e invision, zeplin)

Bad usability for libraries

The idea is really good, but the expense of the program compared to what others offer is a bit much.

Pros

It works well when you need the features. It allows you to hold massive meetings and the controls are pretty easy to get a handle on

Cons

I think the cost is way too much compared to other solutions out there. The software consistently stops screen sharing and can be a bit delayed. Additional administrators are recommended if an online presentation is expected to run smoothly.

Advice to Others

Unless Adobe Connect has a required solution that cannot be overcome with another product or process, I suggest looking elsewhere.

Adobe Connect is a decent product for remote collaborations; however, there are better options out there. We used Adobe Connect recently for interviews. The quality of the video left a lot to be desired. The controls are confusing and it's very easy to accidentally stop sharing video. I would suggest comparing this product to Vidyo, BlueJeans, and Cisco WebEx

Pros

As an admin for our instance, the ability to customize the interface and brand it with our organization's colors is a nice feature. Though, it is not as intuitive as it could be to set your branding. Adding users and setting permissions is easy once you've done a few.

Cons

It just seems old. The interface and and icons could use a major refresh. The video quality isn't the best, and the user interaction needs to be rethought from the ground up.

Advice to Others

Compare this product to Vidyo, WebEx, and BlueJeans before making a purchasing decision.
