Adobe Connect

If you are looking for a High-Definition platform to have multiple locations connect with video as a sole focus of your meeting, then perhaps Adobe Connect is not for you. Video, at the moment, is still low resolution. But that is not its strength - collaboration is. Sharing slides, pictures, audio files, video files, PDF documents, even flash files with the ability to notate on them, take polls, have Q&A, this is what Adobe Connect offers as its focus.

WebinarJam

Great for giving online webinars to large audiences as there are a lot of interaction-specific features you can use to engage your audience.WebinarJam is not so great if you are only trying to engage with a small audience, I would say less than 50 people. GoToMeeting or Skype would probably be a better, cheaper option.

Cons

  • Difficult to track down support; once you do they are helpful but their website is far too vast and getting a person on chat or phone is tricky.
  • Reporting is lacking.

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

Online Training

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

We have use multiple products in the past for customer interaction and from a employee communication product Adobe Connect works really well!

WebinarJam is more specific and catered for webinars with the Q&A features and the polling. It also has better permissions than just host and viewer, which makes it easier to interact with the audience and who is presenting.

Return on Investment

  • This really does not apply to me from the business stand point, however, it did help me improve my presentation skills since I was able to see myself on video and was able to improve my presence and non-verbal cues.

  • WebinarJam has allowed us to present to multiple audiences at our prospective customers, rather than just a few individuals which made it difficult to get to the next sales step. By engaging a larger audience, we were able to drive more attention to our product and made follow up with the customer much easier.
