Adobe Connect

Adobe is a solid platform for a one-way presentation with one presenter sharing information to many others. There is an option for computer audio, or dial in by phone--a feature that I have used repeatedly when I was ON THE GO but needed to attend a meeting. Adobe has a recording function which is perfect for archiving minutes or discussions or saving training sessions that we redistribute later.

Pros

Adobe Connect

  • Provides a recorded archive of meetings and training webinars. This fact is important as we need a record of the events and redistribute archived training.
  • Allows many participants to attend the Live Webinars or meetings without issue. As the number of participants is not the same each time, having the ability to invite as many as possible is a real plus.
  • Provides a log in the email with a link and connection information for people to join the meeting or webinar. This step is important as without it, people could not actually enjoy the benefits of the meeting or webinar.

  • I love the fact that I can save the audio recording of the call
  • When you log in to a meeting, your video is on by default - which seems more natural for our use case
  • Having the ability to set an agenda prior to the call, is really useful

Cons

Adobe Connect

  • Although it is a necessity to have the login email information shared with participants, we have had occasions when the link did not work properly or--more often--the Meeting ID did not allow the participant to enter the meeting room. As this is an issue that is only discovered at the meeting time (you cannot "try it" before the meeting time), it is problematic when it does not work.
  • Adobe Connect does not have the ability to SHARE SCREENS. There is one presenter who can put up documents for the participants to view, but there is no ability to change the Presenter so that multiple screens could be shared. In a roundtable discussion, it would be helpful if different people could share or trade control during the same meeting.
  • There is no ability to see the participants. Although I am sometimes in my lounge clothes when I attend an Adobe Connect meeting, face-to-face contact is helpful for engaging with an audience or for nonverbal communication. Although I think each participant should have control over the ability to use or not use video, I think it should be an option.

  • The on-boarding process for Team spaces is a little confusing and could be improved

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

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Connect

BB Collaborate used to have a horrific UI, now that has improved but the functions aren't there yet.In demoing the tool and Blackboard World 2015 it seemed very unstable.

Zeen wins over its competition because of its ease of use, tightly controlled feature set and the fact that no additional software is required.

Return on Investment

Adobe Connect

  • Flexibility - Every client's needs are different. When you are faced with a meeting that is as simple as slide sharing with audio, or as complex as a major general session with breakout rooms and the ability to view and interact on a wide range of devices, Connect has you covered.
  • Ease-Of-Use - With a simple interface that is easy to learn as well as easy to teach, it offers anyone with a wide variety of technological experience the ability to hold a meeting any time or anywhere.
  • Bottom Line - The gear required to actually host Adobe Connect can be as simple as a laptop or an iPad. You most likely already have everything you need to host a meeting at your home with very little setup required.

  • Overall, Zeen reduces time fussing about getting into meetings; especially the fact that you don't need to install additional software.
