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

I'm in sales and being able to see the person I'm pitching is crucial. There is meda-verbal body language and micro expressions that you cant see while talking on the phone. This is a great way to see the close happening in real time.

Cons

Getting someone that is not computer savvy logged on and ready to go can be frustrating but hey... its a small price to pay.

This software is great for creating presentations for the office and sharing them with colleagues for additional edits. It's a top notch software from a brand name company.

If you are planning to use outside of your own office (i.e. collaborate with a coalition), you have to check that they have it aka limited colloboration.

Including the functionality to have PDF files of the presentations readily available for download is a definite plus.

Pros

The software has universal applicability in all the common internet provider platforms. The features are easy to navigate.

Cons

At times the audio synchronization via the computer does not properly connect which requires participants to dial in. While the meeting host and participants can quickly recover from this at the beginning of the meeting it is a distraction and a detractor to what would otherwise be a perfect virtual meeting.

Online teacher using Adobe Connect as virtual classroom

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

After using Adobe Connect for 3 years on a weekly basis, I have a appreciation for its potential as an educational tool, while a frustration with the severe limitations and lack of functionality. I can tell this is a program meant first and foremost as a tool for meetings, and I cannot endorse it as a regular digital classroom until some of the above issues are addressed.

Pros

Relatively straightforward to use. Allows for stable use of audio and visual communication with large groups. Layout feature makes transitioning between different topics smoother. Downloadable apps allow for the potential for customization. The recording and attendance function make disseminating information easy. Mobile apps allows for more diverse applications. Breakout rooms are an excellent tool for small group learning.

Cons

Base functionality is extremely limited. Notepods don't even have the sort of text modification present even in e-mails or notepad programs, making them extremely limited in use in a classroom. Most educational tools are locked behind a pay wall. The inability for more than one person to write in a notepod hinders collaboration. Inability to use presenter only area while in breakout rooms causes problems. The white board function is virtually unusable due to poor interface and inability to switch between functions smoothly. PDF files require constant resizing to get to a point where they are readable, and often have lots of wasted dead space. Word Files cannot be shared at all. When screen sharing it is difficult to access the functionality of the room itself. When using link pods, one person clicking the link opens it on everyone else's computer. There is severely limited flexibility when it comes to learning options for a classroom, especially for creating interactive experiences, such as games or worksheets. Private messages cannot be seen by the host, allowing students to talk to each other without supervision creating a risk for bullying and off topic conversation, and while private messaging can be turned off in the main room, it cannot be in Breakout Rooms, and turning off private messaging makes it difficult to provide SPED support to students without drawing the attention of classmates.

To get the most out of the product, you're going to need someone to show you how. With so many features, the learning curve can be time-consuming.

The software is easy to use overall. It has multiple options for the value. Depending on your needs, this can be a very valuable asset to your business or personal needs. Overall the value is there and if you are an active Adobe software user, you can't go wrong with this software package.

Cons

The platform of paying monthly versus paying for the software and getting updates is clearly a marketing strategy by Adobe and I wish they would make it slightly less expensive monthly.

It's easy to use the software that hosts a platform that can handle multiple users. The interface is pretty and vibrant and if you've used any other adobe product the familiarity will be there.

Cons

The biggest issue I have with this program is that for the first time user who isn't familiar with adobe does have a fairly steep learning curve especially with all the features that it tends to have over other online platforms. So you have to dictate your purchase based on your skill level.

I love being able to upload a document and share it instead of having to share my screen. This prevents unwanted notifications from being shared while presenting.

Pros

Easy to use as a host and participant.
Works well with telephony.
It has great features like screen recordings, chats, private and public exchanges.

Cons

The quality of the meeting recording is rather poor and not HD.
Sometimes, there can be some serious latency (delay) between the screen and the audio in the recording.
The VOIP can be a hit and miss.
