Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Connect

Adobe Connect is used for live streaming educational classes which allow for powerpoint presentations, user interactions, and viewing of video clips by individuals in various locations. This allows for training among professionals where travel to the same location is not an option. It has given greater flexibility in our training platform.
  • User interaction on a sidebar while viewing material works well.
  • Most of the powerpoint slides are easily readable; occasionally, some are difficult.
  • Dialing in and connecting to the server tends to do well.
  • Videos don't always play well--it can be hard to see what is being streamed.
  • Sometimes you get 'kicked out' of the meeting and need to restart the computer to get back in--this is frustrating because of the wasted downtime.
  • An easy meeting via internet product!
  • Reliable meeting software.
  • It offers employee connection with speed and ease.
I have used GoToMeeting only a few times. I am more familiar with Adobe connect. I have found them both useful in connecting employees, reviewing material together. I am not sure how GoToMeeting does with videos to stream. Due to the frequency of use, I would recommend Adobe Connect over GoToMeeting.
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.
