I highly recommend Adobe Connect for visually-driven webinars/presentations where a majority of the participants are offsite, and where a single speaker at a time has the mic. It is less appropriate for meetings where multiple people need to have a generative conversation, as it's easy to talk over each other and end up with garbled audio (the fate of conference calls everywhere).

If you're looking for just a basic meeting tool, there are cheaper ones (like Zoom) that will do the trick just fine. Where Adobe Connect shines is when you're looking for a virtual training tool, because of its more robust feature set and the fact that you can set up room layouts ahead of time and reuse them and because of the available add-ons, which can help make learning more engaging. (In fact, on that engagement front, I believe you can also present learners with interactive quizzes, etc., if you create them in another Adobe tool, like Presenter or Captivate.)

Adobe Connect is very suitable for online or distance training. It is the reason why I have used the software. Provides good chat tools for teacher interaction. The downside is that the audio quality was a problem the times I used it. It seems to me to depend a lot on the internet band. Screen sharing does not occupy the entire monitor area.

Training with PowerPoint presentations, user interactions, and questions/answers works well with Adobe Connect. The video streaming needs help, and we have had the session stop and come back 15 minutes later, once it is fixed. The email invitation to join a group process is easy and the platform works well on laptops.

For training sessions and meetings where you might want to conduct breakout sessions, Adobe Connect is in a class by itself. I haven't seen any other conferencing platform equal its breadth of tools and functionality. However, if all you want to do is simple screen sharing and talk, Adobe Connect is overkill. Save yourself money and reduce complexity by going with a simpler platform.

Adobe Connect is well suited for real business and school applications. When you have a large staff and corporate or school structure, you need to offer training and meetings for all employees to avoid the stress of sending emails and worrying who will or won't show up to in-face meetings with strict schedules.

It is perfectly structured for new employees, tech savvy or not, to learn the software so they can easily participate in virtual meetings, trainings or reviewing documents needed. It could be less useful in small businesses with 20 or fewer employees where face to face interaction and the need for more hands-on meetings and discussions are important. However, even with small businesses, I doubt you want employees wasting time, so using Adobe Connect, especially if you already use other Adobe products, would help.

For virtual training! Adobe Connect is amazing when used in that specific context. If you just want a tool to host/record a presentation, it is OK and is comparable to all the other big names out there (Webex, Skype for Business, Zoom, etc.). When it comes to doing virtual breakout sessions, this is amazing and forces people to actually listen to the webinar and interac amongst themselves opposed to a typical session with low amount of participation unless people are put on the spot.

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.

If you wish to deliver online training that generates a real classroom feel - Adobe is a great platform. Using other leading webinar platforms to pull this off feels like kind of a stretch. Adobe can upload documents, allow for collaboration and private breakout sessions. There are many features that can bring a true classroom feeling for students. We broke our course out into a week duration for a few hours a day. It is great to see our students take on the technology, understand the material and bond with the instructor and students as if they spent the week under the same roof.

Adobe Connect is perfect for real-time webinars and webinar series. This could be internally and externally. It’s also great that you are able to include attachments for your viewers.

Adobe Connect is ideal for interactive sessions, for electronic learning, an application that is integrated in a versatile way with other platforms and tools, increasing its performance within the company for end users, the webcams are excellent for monitoring the commitment of the employees during seminars or video conferences.

It's a great solution for companies that are constantly creating webinars and presentations for both internal and external use. It's especially useful when some of the team members are located far from the HQ for daily meetings. I don't see it very well suited for smaller companies that can't afford it.

If you need a software that allows multiple users to share their screens, then this is well suited for you. Your meeting space is customizable with various features. There are also many valuable tutorials that help to "Get Started," which have been very helpful to our team. Not appropriate if you have a meeting that requires a large group.

If looking for a standard 100 seat license, the service is affordable. Additional licenses in the past were obscenely priced and does limit our outreach. Adobe Connect has been a very useful tool for communicating with the ability to share presentation material to a wide audience.

If communicating with 30-90 agents in the virtual world, Adobe Connect definitely allows for the communication in a simplified environment. For example, f you have 30 agents taking calls, this program offers a way for agents to communicate. If questions are needed answered, the hosts have the ability to pose those questions and get answers from the group. In a smaller group, this may be a bit of overkill and may not be needed. Large groups of 75-100 would create and environment that is less appropriate as there are to many people asking questions and not receiving answers. This amount of people in one room may get lost in the confusion.

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.

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.

Training small groups of people that require breakout rooms and high levels of interaction. Training where the same content is delivered multiple times over time - because you can maintain a persistent room layout and content Meetings where multiple people may need to present and support the meeting at the same time

About Adobe Connect

Adobe Connect is a web conferencing platform that provides standard features like video, audio, screen-sharing, polls, chat, Q&A, and document transfers, as well as the ability for users to create presentations, online training materials, and learning modules.

The product is entirely Adobe Flash-based and has several add-ons for customizing its software to suit each users’ unique needs. Some extensions that are available include, but are not limited to, Closed Captioning support, Word Cloud (for visualizing live discussions), and MP3 player for adding music to users’ meeting rooms.

Users can create or style their own meeting room layouts which can be saved. They can also add multiple chat pods, polls, quizzes, simulations, breakout rooms, HD video, and games to make meetings and online conferencing more interactive. Additionally, Adobe Connect allows for presenters and hosts to utilize a “virtual backstage” to chat and collaborate outside of the main meeting or conference. It also allows for users to go into a “preparation mode” to make adjustments right before or during a session.



Pricing for Adobe Connect Meetings ranges from $50/mo up to $370/mo. Additional webinar capabilities through Adobe Connect Webinar ranges $140/mo to $580/mo, from a webinar with 100 participants to one with up to 1000 participants.
