Adobe Connect

October 17, 2020

 

Adobe has combined many of its offerings including Adobe Connect Webinars, Adobe Connect Learning and Adobe Connect Meetings. These 3 applications form the core  a suite used for remote training, web conferencing, presentations and desktop sharing. The platform is used heavily by educators delivering remote classes.

Organizers create meeting rooms which are then split into pods, each with a specific role. Users have the ability to have breakout sessions, screen share, record and create an unlimited number of meetings rooms. Pros include advanced security and privacy, elaborate tracking features accurate multilingual translations. Participants have said the interface is not user-friendly if you’re not super “tech-savvy”, pricing is too high, there’s an old look and feel and there’s latency issues  if too many people are in one room. A free trial is available and the newest version 11.0 offers enhancements including better whiteboard, notetaking, and recording features.  PC Magazine’s review states that Adobe Connect does a good job delivering a solid video conferencing service that is powerful and flexible, but suffers from an overabundance of options. While some may be able to harness that power, others will be frustrated by the learning curve. However, you’ll need to use Voice-over-IP (VoIP) or a third-party dial-in service for audio.
