Adobe Connect

It is nice for projects where you don’t need a lot of bells and whistles. If you are doing a basic live training with a small number of participants, it is easy to manage. I also enjoyed having the ability to brand a classroom and create different setups. I would not recommend if you plan to reuse trainings because of the issue with downloading recordings. I also had issues figuring out how to set up access to live recordings beyond sending a link. I wanted to create a unique login for users but I did not find it easy to do. Also if you want users to view additional videos within the classroom and/or access other third-party features, it is hit or miss. I found it to be incompatible with devices beyond desktop/laptop computers. In addition, the price is a bit expensive for a product that is not as flexible as other products on the market that are cheaper.

EverWebinar is well suited for the people who have done LIVE webinars several times and have tweaked them to the point of converting well. Take that webinar and pop it into EverWebinar for an automated experience to set that webinar funnel on evergreen. That way you don't have to show up live all the time and the end user can watch at their convenience.

EverWebinar

  • EverWebinar is really good at the set-up process for your automated webinar. It makes it very easy in their step-by-step set-up process
  • EverWebinar looks really nice on the end user's side. When people are attending your webinar, they will have a very easy and intuitive experience. The format looks modern and professional.
  • EverWebinar also allows you to make it feel like an automated webinar is LIVE or WAS Live. You can add comments to pop up at certain times etc.
  • EverWebinar has their own tested landing pages that you can choose to use AND you can also split test them - which is something other webinar companies dont' do.

Cons

Adobe Connect

  • High Definition - It seems that no matter where you look, modern cameras are capable of capturing high definition video footage. Adobe needs to think about finding a way to upgrade the video quality and consistency that is viewable by the audience. There is the "least common denominator" factor to consider, but that is quickly rising, allowing better video opportunities.
  • HTML5 - As technology advances, so should Adobe. HTML5 offers the potential to hold meetings on any device despite its platform.
  • Flash - Quickly on its way out. It was one of the most proliferative installations on everyone's computer and in its time was stupendous. But it is quickly becoming dated. With the advent of HTML5, flash is quickly not becoming needed in order to have cross-platform content happen. With a strong push by Adobe, this could quickly become a reality for Connect.

  • EverWebinar can improve on the way they have the timing set-up it's set to GMT and not local time. Makes it confusing.
  • EverWebinar can improve on their reporting. It's very limited and you can't really tell if people showed up later and watched your pitch or if they only watched so many minutes before your pitch. They need to really improve their reporting. It's super confusing. Although the data charts look nice, it's not helpful.
  • EverWebinar doesn't really play nice with ActiveCampaign. So be warned if you're trying to connect both of them. You will have to find a third party software to integrate them nicely.

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

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

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Connect

We selected Adobe Connect, because it is an application with a lower cost and offers the same functionality as Skype for Business, and even its interface seems easier to use and more practical.

EverWebinar

Everwebinar allows you to take a previously recorded webinar and set it up to play like a scheduled webinar automatically. This way you don't have to show up every day several times a day to do your webinar. Just have the end user sign up for the next available webinar that everwebinar will do for you.

Return on Investment

Adobe Connect

  • Adobe Connect has improved the way we communicate inside and outside the company, both with employees as suppliers and external customers.
  • Adobe Connect has improved the way to share information to my collaborators, has a wide acceptance of formats or files.
  • To have an excellent performance in the use of Adobe Connect, the company must have robust and good quality computing equipment to maximize the experience and comfort offered by this application, which generates a costly investment in the IT area.

EverWebinar

  • We've been able to easily make back the money that EverWebinar costs with selling $300 products up to $2000 products.
  • Automating an already successful webinar with EverWebinar is a smart move. Don't try and create one that isn't proven to work.
  • There are several webinar platforms out there but EverWebinar does a great job with turning it evergreen.
