Adobe Connect is a web conferencing software based on the Adobe Flash technology designed for distance education, training sessions, information exchange, online meetings, etc. Adobe Connect is fully compatible with Adobe Flash, apparently because the same company created them, and that allows you to use all their capabilities to the maximum.
Adobe Connect does not require the installation of any additional software on computers. So you, as a host, and your audience can use Adobe Connect easily. Any participants can join meetings just using the desktop. The program also enables online audio and video collaboration across devices, including mobile platforms.
Adobe Connect has plenty of functions, and you can determine which features will be accessible to your web-conference presenters or participants. It is worth to mention that not every online meeting room can be entered at will. You will give access for the session to every member before it begins. To do so, you just need to change a person's status. Also, you can customize the way users access your meetings: require them to register and create passwords or make the conference room open for the audience.
Adobe Connect has visualization tools such as polls, chat, whiteboards. You can mix video streams to increase engagement of your participants in the meetings. You’ll also keep them involved by making a writing on the whiteboard available to everybody or displaying any public or private chat on the screen.
There is an option for the participants to agree or disagree with a topic by pressing the buttons accordingly. So they will express their opinion without interrupting the meeting.
If you have any issues during the meeting and need certain people to work on it, you can create a separate virtual breakout room for them.
Another advantage of Adobe Connect is that you can save any meeting recordings in the cloud and they will stay secure. Moreover, you can look through reports and statistics after each meeting, make conclusions and improve your next sessions. The reports will include such details as a number of participants that were present or what time they accessed or finished the meeting.
This web-meeting program has a slightly intricate interface, but if you spend some time on learning it, then it will be pretty understandable to you. Just look through your presentation before the meeting starts and find out how the navigation works. Each tab is dedicated to the particular function. You can customize these windows with features during the meetings to simplify your work with the interface.
You can use Adobe Connect for giving a real-time lecture to your students, oversee your trainees or make an interactive learning. You, as a presenter, can create virtual classrooms, monitor all participants engagement, and use such features as quizzes, tests and surveys for your learning system. Trainers can supervise employees directly from their mobile devices.
Besides all bright features, Adobe Connect is a highly secure program. It is being used by government and commercial agencies which mean Adobe Connect has an intense concentration on security. It might be substantial if you work with confidential information.
