Adobe Connect

Unfortunately, I think even if you ask all the appropriate questions during the selection process, you could still pick Adobe Connect over another product. I think that it's appropriate for our situation, but it lacks reliability and communication with its users. We never know of new changes coming up and when a problem occurs, Adobe Connect is not helpful in resolving the issue. It usually comes back as a user error issue, when that is definitely not the case in most instances. I think the software itself is appropriate as a simple Web conference platform to use if you want multiple speakers to be able to control the same presentation. It also provides pretty good reporting post-web conference. I think if you also want it as a "one stop shop" for invitations and reporting that way, it would work. Unfortunately, we use a separate system for that process, which doesn't always integrate correctly. Our attorneys like it because it's easy to use on their end as presenters, but I find as the host doing most of the set up and administrative duties, it's not the easiest software to use.

ClickWebinar

ClickWebinar is great for large meetings with only one or two presenters. If you're planning a collaborative meeting with a smaller group, use another platform that will allow you to all participate via audio/visual. ClickMeeting allows 150+ participants via chat only, so it's best use is for training.

Pros

  • It allows us to present exactly how we want to present; We can share one PowerPoint presentation for all speakers to use during their presentation, allowing them to move their own slides. Allows for a cleaner presentation overall.
  • Relatively user-friendly once you're in your Seminar Room for your presentation. Attorneys seem to be able to use the software with ease.
  • Various pods in your Seminar Room allow you to set up your room exactly as you want it with the features you use most often or find helpful during your presentation.

  • ClickWebinar allows large numbers of attendees - something that other video-chat or presentation platforms limit
  • ClickWebinar allows for several types of media to be presented, including slideshows, documents, YouTube videos, and polls

Cons

  • The quality (resolution) of webcam and screen share is very poor, other programs such as Workplace have a better webcam resolution
  • Live streaming has a lot of lag (this might be a network issue)

  • ClickWebinar is glitchy. We've run into a lot of issues with freezing, lack of audio/visual, participants unable to join, etc., even when our internet connections are good and functional otherwise
  • ClickWebinar can be expensive. There are a LOT of options for customization - which is great - but it feels like a lot of little things are, cost-wise, large upgrades

Adobe Connect has been instrumental in developing stronger connections in our classrooms (virtually and residentially), to our faculty across all campuses, and to all departments. It provides leadership the ability to share real-time information, documents, visions and plans and problem solve as a team. It allows all parties the opportunity to work together making connections in a virtual world

Usability

Adobe Connect9.0
Based on 5 answers
As sophisticated a product as Adobe Connect, the ease of use is outstanding. In my experience, even a user with very little knowledge of Adobe Connect can begin using and even leading sessions with very little training to get started with the basic features. Additional training is needed to become comfortable with the number of available features, but learning curve even for those is no steeper than would normally be expected from similar software.

The ability to have most of the functionality of a full LMS at a fraction of the cost is huge. I can create manage and deploy both synchronous and asynchronous training based on the situation and all of my training is tracked through a series of easily created reports

Implementation

Adobe Connect7.9
Based on 4 answers
Prices do not seem to vary much among resellers of the Adobe Connect hosted license; the only price variation you're likely to find are among the audio providers. When implementing, you may also wish to look into expanding the amount of storage you are allowed on the server to avoid any problems later on as your library of files starts to build up

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Connect was the tool we used because we could record sessions and share files within the meetings themselves. Both Adobe Connect and Google Hangouts allow you to share your screen, but you have to connect with the person on Google Hangouts first. With Adobe Connect, you can simply email a meeting link and password so the person can have access.

We selected ClickWebinar based on price, ease of access, and number of participants allowed. Zoom and GoToMeeting were both somewhat comparable in price, although slightly more expensive than ClickWebinar. The main issue with Zoom and GoToMeeting for us was that it required the participants to download something in order to attend, which can deter users in our target demographic. Google Hangouts does not require downloads, but it only allowed 10-15 people per meeting, which meant we couldn't onboard as many people at once.

Return on Investment

  • We did not have to pay for as much employee travel since communication could be carried out over long distances with this software.
  • Many people could receive training at one time/in one virtual meeting.
  • Employees could also receive additional, on-demand support with ease, since major travel arrangements were not needed to access colleagues.

  • ClickWebinar has allowed us to onboard/train hundreds more customers/clients per week to use our platform than we used to be able to, which in turn has brought us more revenue.
  • ClickWebinar has been somewhat costly and glitchy, but overall is the best webinar platform that we can find for the price.
