Adobe Connect Software


 

Adobe Connect is a Web conferencing software solution for conducting online meetings, webinars and training sessions. It is priced according to three models, each of which is intended for use in different business contexts.

Adobe Connect Meetings is for ad hoc collaboration as well as planned online meetings. It enables online audio and video collaboration across devices (including mobile platforms). Participants using desktops can join meetings with no downloads.

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

Adobe Connect Learning is a Web conferencing solution specifically designed for interactive training. Presenters can monitor participant engagement, create persistent virtual classrooms and integrate the software with an existing learning management system (LMS). Indeed, features such as games, quizzes, tests and surveys allow businesses to use Adobe Connect in place of an LMS.

It's got the reputable name of Adobe behind the product, and it's been around for a while. It does the job it's supposed to.

Adobe has pedigree being around so long, yet I don't think they've evolved to meet the needs of the upcoming generations using their products.

Recommendations

Check out Adobe, their features, UI, support. Then look at some up-and-coming competitors, I think you'll be surprised to see what some of these younger companies can offer.

Adobe Connect is a great tool for making meetings and training sessions more engaging. It provides tools like video, chat, screen sharing, document sharing and it is easy to use it. You can easily send invites to participants and it has also a mobile app. The best part is that you can record the meeting and share it. Adobe Connect gives you the option to download the recordings and save them as mp4 files. That is brilliant especially for adding captioning to lectures. Overall its a very good tool.

Likes Least

The monthly cost and that it does not offer its own dial-in service.

Recommendations

There are many videoconferencing products and what I suggest is to try the free trial of each before you commit on a monthly fee.

Adobe Connect is really great at e-Learning and e-Training. Breakout rooms, running Q&A in large meetings, value added services from their resellers - it all adds up to a great Enterprise meeting tool. It's purpose built for large company deployments.

Adobe Connect, like Cisco WebEx, Citrix GoToMeeting and others, is a stodgy meeting tool. I am always doing product demos, and so screensharing is my main use case. Connect doesn't share the screenshare video stream at a very high frames per second. This single variable hurts the tool quite a lot for what I need it for.

Recommendations

There are a suite of next generation technologies like Zoom and Join.me that are far more nimble, lightweight and easier to use. Adobe's UX could use some work. I would encourage you to check out Trials of some of the newest tools and comparing them to older tools like Connect.
