Figure out if you're looking for a conferencing tool or a training tool. If the primary purpose is going to be for web meetings, then I would likely look elsewhere. There is better standalone conferencing software. If you're trying to upgrade your training platform, this is a great option. They offer an abundance of tools that make this a viable option for those who will be presenting without producers as well.

MS SharePoint

It's well suited for a project site that people need to post documents to. It's really great if it's set up by someone else, and then just updated little by little. It's less appropriate for a place for people to discuss ideas or 'hang out'. Other tools, such as Slack or Teams are much better suited for this purpose. SharePoint is better at archiving structured information.

Pros

  • Polling
  • Lots of 3rd party add ons available
  • desktop sharing
Mark Nowowiejski profile photo
  • Coming bundled with other office products is really nice. Most people are going to need Outlook, Word, Excel - having access to SharePoint is nice to get with our site license.
  • SharePoint is powerful. It can do a lot of things, and we haven't really even started to understand how it can be used.
  • They've redesigned recently to make it easier to get started. You can make pages and add parts to the pages really easily. Going deeper takes a lot of trial and error.

Cons

  • Recordings default to Flash which can't be viewed on many mobile devices. They offer the ability to export recordings as MP4s, but it would be nice if you could set this as the default.
  • Some useful features are not provided with the hosted model, such as Adobe Presenter, which allows you to upload content directly from PowerPoint, preserving settings and fonts.

  • Could be more intuitive. Sometimes it takes an expert in the system to understand how to grant access and what types of access to grant
  • The built-in features are difficult to choose from - hard to identify which ones fit my needs, they can be too complicated
  • If SharePoint is not customized, such as the out-of-the-box version, it's hard to ensure it will fit my business needs.

If SharePoint really focused on non-technical user experience design, it's usefulness to the broader user community would increase dramatically.

Microsoft has gotten better in it's ability to support SharePoint over the years. In addition, Microsoft and third party support offerings are abundant.

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

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

Windows server and active directory preparation is critical to a successful implementation. A pre-installation checklist goes a long way and saves a bundle of rework.

Alternatives Considered

All the listed software are better than Adobe Connect in their own specialized functions, but Adobe has more functions than the listed software (Adobe provides a one-stop shop).

The institution tried a couple other solutions such as Alfresco, Box.com, and even Facebook for business. I believe only Alfresco was the closets to replicate most of the MS Sharepoint functionality. What it comes down to, is the requirements. For example, if you are looking for a community type of site, then something like Facebook for business is the best solution. For our institution, it came down to easy integration with other Microsoft solutions and this was the major reason to use SharePoint.
