Comments: After using Adobe Connect for 3 years on a weekly basis, I have a appreciation for its potential as an educational tool, while a frustration with the severe limitations and lack of functionality. I can tell this is a program meant first and foremost as a tool for meetings, and I cannot endorse it as a regular digital classroom until some of the above issues are addressed.

Pros: Relatively straightforward to use. Allows for stable use of audio and visual communication with large groups. Layout feature makes transitioning between different topics smoother. Downloadable apps allow for the potential for customization. The recording and attendance function make disseminating information easy. Mobile apps allows for more diverse applications. Breakout rooms are an excellent tool for small group learning.

Cons: Base functionality is extremely limited. Notepods don't even have the sort of text modification present even in e-mails or notepad programs, making them extremely limited in use in a classroom. Most educational tools are locked behind a pay wall. The inability for more than one person to write in a notepod hinders collaboration. Inability to use presenter only area while in breakout rooms causes problems. The white board function is virtually unusable due to poor interface and inability to switch between functions smoothly. PDF files require constant resizing to get to a point where they are readable, and often have lots of wasted dead space. Word Files cannot be shared at all. When screen sharing it is difficult to access the functionality of the room itself. When using link pods, one person clicking the link opens it on everyone else's computer. There is severely limited flexibility when it comes to learning options for a classroom, especially for creating interactive experiences, such as games or worksheets. Private messages cannot be seen by the host, allowing students to talk to each other without supervision creating a risk for bullying and off topic conversation, and while private messaging can be turned off in the main room, it cannot be in Breakout Rooms, and turning off private messaging makes it difficult to provide SPED support to students without drawing the attention of classmates.

Pros: You can customize your conference room depending on how and what you want to share. There are pods within your conference room which allows you to have a document sharing pod, a video sharing pod, a chat pod, survey pod, etc. To many to name. You can host one on one as well as one to many(Events). I use to train clients on this tool and the feedback was always positive. The interface dashboard is very is to navigate while in the meeting because you can show only what you what your audience to see. This allows you to pull documents, presentations and videos in the meeting on the fly. You can also record your meetings and send out recording that can be tracked to know if the recipient viewed the recording and or forwarded. There are way to many pros to name. The company I worked for was a conferencing provider and we sold partner products...WebEx, Microsoft, etc and Adobe Connect was always ranked high. One other pro...there is no download to join a meeting, you click the link and you're in. Ever tried to join a meeting and have to wait for something to download on your desktop before you enter - headache.

Overall: This was the best conferencing tool. Sold it and used it daily.

Very useful tool for hosting virtual meetings. Does have a few bugs and limitations!

Pros: I have used Adobe Connect for hosting MANY meetings where some attendees could not be on campus. It works well for its purpose. It has just enough features to do everything that you need it to, but not so many features that it is overwhelming. I frequently use the recording feature to keep track of meetings and distribute them later to folks who couldn't attend (as well as go back and listen to some parts for note-taking purposes). It's also nice to be able to switch between meeting room formats so that you can share a separate screen, add notes during the webcast, upload files to share with other participants, etc.

Cons: Honestly, I feel that there are some better options available that have the same types of features. Adobe Connect tends to be quite buggy. I've had a lot of problems with people getting dropped or having bad connections. Sometimes audio or video freezes up while we are using it, especially when trying to share screens. Participants also have to be a bit tech-savvy when using the software, if they want a good experience. I found that many of the people tuning in did not have headphones which caused a lot of volume/feedback issues. I often end up having to put "tech support" shoes on while trying to run a meeting, in order to get everyone on the virtual end to be able to hear and see the meeting clearly.

Overall: This is a great software for hosting interactive virtual meetings and classes.

Pros: Due to my duties within the corporation where I live, we have to make trips to the interior of the country and abroad in order to attend petroleum meetings, chemistry or simply go to recondite places where it is presumed there will be future oil exploitation.

In this absence to our natural workspace, Adobe Connect plays a fundamental role, since, among its many benefits, one of the most important and for which we use the software the most, is that we can make meeting rooms online, from a Android device, tablet or IOS, with our immediate supervisors, managers and managers, making daily reports of the progress we are making in the external areas where we are working.

This incalculable goodness saves us incalculable resources of time and money, since only from our cell phone or tablet, we can be making timely advances in the site in an effective way and with the greater security that only Adobe Connect can offer.

Cons: When I have had to set up an online room to set up meetings, complications have arisen based on some complex tools that the software has. While it is not a problem in itself of the functionality of the software, it is a point that should be taken into account so that the next updates are easier to use and so everyone can use the software in a simple way.

Pros: I am an avid user and administrator of Adobe Connect, it is a great product. the features I like most are on the admin side, with the recording features and uploading capabilities. It's great that on a single platform, I can host over 40 people, all while launching everything from separate chat windows to PPTs, to audio recordings, embedded videos, and more, all while maintaining consistent bandwidth quality.

Cons: I constantly run into Audio problems. Every presenter I have use Adobe, which rotates on a bi-weekly basis, has a different setup, computer, and audio equipment. This seems to be a problem about half of the time, with different people having different issues syncing either their mic or speakers. This became hugely problematic in the first week as I had an audience of about 75 people, where I needed to take time away from the session to troubleshoot audio issues.

Overall: Overall, I love the product but wish I could find a better way of producing output reports to manage attendance. I'm sure there's a better way of doing it the way I currently do, but I couldn't find it myself. There could be a more pronounced, efficient way to come up with solutions in this area and others. If the audio issues were resolved, I'd be even more excited about Connect. The multi-function platform fits our Manager training very well, although we experience issues along the way from time-to-time.

Better for larger organizations than small biz owners or solopreneurs.

Pros: I first used Adobe Connect when I was doing training and professional development for a large non-profit. I used it quite literally everyday and found it essential to creating a quality learning environment. Now I use it sporadically for teaching my own courses and sometimes recommend it to clients and assist them in setting up their webinars/courses.

This is a true e-learning tool that's probably more than what most small biz owners will need. It's definitely intended for pros and people who do quite a bit of online teaching. (I.e., if you just need video conferencing, there are easier to use and less expensive options. But if you frequently need to create a professional and interactive virtual classroom, this is a great tool.) It has the expected functions: screensharing, PDF/document sharing, survey and Q&A capabilities, meeting recording, etc. Customer service is good, but I rarely needed it since they have some quality tutorials available.

Cons: The price is on the expensive side and the more functionalities you use, the glitchier it can get. However, I found that most of the glitches happened on the host side of things, not the end-user or student side.

Pros: The inclusion Adobe Connect to the consortium where I work has been one of the best decisions taken by the Department of Informatics, and this I say, because the previous solutions we had to communicate in video calls and video calls were very poor and did not offer all the benefits offered this software.

On the one hand, this software is excellent because you can create conference rooms with a personal key that allows controlling access to users, giving you higher levels of security.

On the other hand Adobe Connect offers other elemntos for the interaction in the room that are very interesting as they are, notes, private chats and group chats, shared files and videos, which increase the interaction between the different participants of the room.

And finally, one of the greatest benefits that Adobe Connect has and that makes it one of the best is that it can be used in tablets, smart phones and IOS.

Cons: For the amount of benefits that the software has, it tends to become a bit sophisticated, needing medium knowledge in the computer area to use the software at its maximum capacity

Overall: It is the best option in the market to make videoconference rooms where work team meetings can be held that for one reason or another are not located in the same physical space

Adobe Connect is a simple to-utilize video conferencing administration with liberal highlights

Pros: Exceptionally adjustable gathering spaces. Free trial doesn't require installment data. Adobe Connect's dark and-white interface looks extremely corporate, reminiscent of big business programming I've used to track get-away days or submit cost reports at different employments. It's laid out keenly, however, with one menu at the highest point of the page that connects to your spared substance and layouts.

Cons: On the expensive side, especially on the off chance that you require numerous hosts. No dial-in numbers as it were

Pros: Adobe connect has a very robust set of tools for hosting meetings. It's easy to manage and switch between different tools and roles. Adobe makes it easy for clients to connect to meetings.

Cons: Broadcast quality leaves a lot to be desired. There's no way to set up crystal clear output for others to view and sharing pre-recorded video makes for enormous lag while it cuts in and out. It also seems to go offline fairly often, and customer service is very difficult to get a hold of to ask questions.

Pros: The software is easy to use overall. It has multiple options for the value. Depending on your needs, this can be a very valuable asset to your business or personal needs. Overall the value is there and if you are an active Adobe software user, you can't go wrong with this software package.

Cons: The platform of paying monthly versus paying for the software and getting updates is clearly a marketing strategy by Adobe and I wish they would make it slightly less expensive monthly.

Pros: We decided to use this solution because of its functionality. But they did not calculate that it would cost so much. Indeed, the product does not require the installation of additional software and has a wide cross-platform. All you need is access to the Internet. However, the price just killed. The cost of a package for 5 students with installation on the server of the company and technical support cost $ 30. Our need was to expand the package to at least 30 people. Here also consider.

Cons: The main disadvantage - the price. It is easy to find affordable solutions cheaper, albeit not so convenient.

Pros: Adobe Connect is a program backed by a major company and with it comes significant features. Sustainable archives are the most significant need for our school. They remain year after year so we can use archives from past school years to train new teachers.

Cons: Because Adobe is such a large company it is often hard to get a quick answer when problems occur. It can take over a week to get an answer.

Comments: Overall, Adobe connect is a good tool to possess for a company if a platform for virtual meetings does not exist but before getting too much into Adobe connect new organizations should definitely explore the competitor software as it does lack in flexibility and customization.

Pros: One of the great advantages of using adobe connect is that is automatically connects and integrates with existing video conference rooms which is an extremely helpful feature. Its very simple to use and relatively user-friendly, it offers almost all features that its competitors offer like recording meetings or sending chats.

Cons: One of the major disadvantages of using Adobe Connect is that compared to it's competitor it does not have as many options to establish various levels of controls that you need in the meeting. It has a few general settings that may not be applicable to all scenarios and all organizations and therefore can sometimes lead to inconvenience.

Pros: When we're on camera, I really like that we can pause the camera for us. This makes it easy for me to stay on camera but not disrupt the class if I have to get up to get something for a second. I also like that there's both chat and camera, and people can raise their hands, agree/disagree, etc. Those are really helpful especially when we're in class and you aren't on camera so you can raise your hand without disrupting anything. Additionally you can be very quiet and again not disrupt anyone if you have to step away for a few minutes.

Cons: Sometimes our teacher will accidentally get kicked out of the class by the software and then the class will sit there awkwardly and be told that we'll be kicked out in the next 5 minutes as well. The teacher always gets back in but it tends to throw off the balance of the class and make us forget what we were talking about before.

Pros: Adobe Connect is really great at e-Learning and e-Training. Breakout rooms, running Q&A in large meetings, value added services from their resellers - it all adds up to a great Enterprise meeting tool. It's purpose built for large company deployments.

Cons: Adobe Connect, like Cisco WebEx, Citrix GoToMeeting and others, is a stodgy meeting tool. I am always doing product demos, and so screensharing is my main use case. Connect doesn't share the screenshare video stream at a very high frames per second. This single variable hurts the tool quite a lot for what I need it for.

Recommendations to other buyers: There are a suite of next generation technologies like Zoom and Join.me that are far more nimble, lightweight and easier to use. Adobe's UX could use some work. I would encourage you to check out Trials of some of the newest tools and comparing them to older tools like Connect.

Comments: Woohoo!

Pros: I love the easy to use White Board feature, it really allows my students to be more interactive with the video rather than them just listening. Theres a background area in which you can store documents and files that you can get easy access to while still in the video. I also love the fact that my students can present live to the rest of the class. Its a great program!

Cons: I think the only problem with this app is because it has all those amazing features it can tend to get a little crowded on the main screen, so a hidden button feature would be nice to have. But otherwise a great product!

Pros: Adobe Connect is a great tool for making meetings and training sessions more engaging. It provides tools like video, chat, screen sharing, document sharing and it is easy to use it. You can easily send invites to participants and it has also a mobile app. The best part is that you can record the meeting and share it. Adobe Connect gives you the option to download the recordings and save them as mp4 files. That is brilliant especially for adding captioning to lectures. Overall its a very good tool.

Cons: The monthly cost and that it does not offer its own dial-in service.

Recommendations to other buyers: There are many videoconferencing products and what I suggest is to try the free trial of each before you commit on a monthly fee.

Comments: Another benefit is the backing of Adobe and their consistently high quality customer service (at least in my experience!). If you do have a problem or a question you shouldn't have any trouble getting an answer or assistance.

Pros: I really enjoy using Adobe Connect. I've used several different web conference products and Adobe Connect is one of the best. It's simple and streamlined when compared to some of the other conference products out there. But simple doesn't mean useless! Connect is still a very functional product that you won't need to spend a lot of time learning to use - you'll be able to jump right in and begin hosting your own meetings.

Cons: The free version is more limited than some of the other free web conference products s if you're looking for a free service I'd keep looking. However, even the most basic paid version of this product is definitely worth it so if you're looking for an entry level product you may want to trial Adobe Connect!

Pros: This product is easy to use and affordable. With the help of him, it's easy to express your ideas and share them, interacting with other people. The program is convenient to use for conferences.

Cons: I'm disappointed with the low bandwidth of Adobe Connect, because even if there is a high-speed Internet connection, there is no guarantee that there will not be a malfunction.

Pros: Video conferencing and presentations are convenient. Screen sharing is convenient and simplifies presenting.

Cons: Major lag and you can't share any type of video because it does not play. Somewhat costly compared to other options today.

Overall: We used to use this for work but dropped our licenses due to the lack of ability to run video on screen share which is critical to our sales process.

Comments: System should have

Pros: In my opinion, Adobe connect is ideal for Web based Confrences and collaborations , we use it as virtual classroom to share ideas and conduct training with office staff . Easy to deploy.

Cons: System should have latest updates and patches. Preferred browser is IE, and shockwave plugins are obsolete. Else everything is fine.

Pros: We used this program to test trial webinars that our team would be holding internally with outside companies. We were able to successfully load our presentation and videos into the platform and there were also capabilities of having presentations recorded to have access to them at a later date.

Cons: Although we were able to successfully load our presentation and videos, we experienced glitches when testing everything out through a webinar. The sound was echoed and there were delays when the video would play. When having to hold a webinar for a large group of individuals this was not as reliable as we thought it would be. I would definitely research your options before deciding on a platform to use for webinars. v

Comments: Including the functionality to have PDF files of the presentations readily available for download is a definite plus.

Pros: The software has universal applicability in all the common internet provider platforms. The features are easy to navigate.

Cons: At times the audio synchronization via the computer does not properly connect which requires participants to dial in. While the meeting host and participants can quickly recover from this at the beginning of the meeting it is a distraction and a detractor to what would otherwise be a perfect virtual meeting.

Pros: I often communicate with my colleagues and customers in Adobe Connect. It is very pleasant and convenient that here you can create a layout of the meeting room for a particular team once and use this chat regularly, without changing the settings.

Cons: I'm disappointed by the low bandwidth of the application. Even if you have a good high-speed Internet - this will not guarantee you the excellent quality of communication and the smooth operation of the application.

-Work meetings with this software have a very good performance.

-Web support for the use of this software is quite efficient and capable

Cons: Since we used this software in all of our meetings, both as a team and with clients and bosses, we have had an exponential increase in our productivity and personal skills, which is why I have no complaints about this software.

Overall: The use of video conferences, webinars, meetings with non-contact clients and learning new web tools are now more effective for my professional development thanks to Adobe Connect. Having this software in your company and personal business is very important, and I recommend buying it

Pros: The product was free to use and had very little issues throughout the webinar using this software. All that was needed was a quick download and the program started up with no apparent issues. The quality was mediocre but clear. I did not have any connection issues throughout the entire webinar (3.5 hours). All necessary information (speaker video, presentation, chat window, and "downloads" section were all available in one window.

Cons: While I never lost connection, I did experience several obvious instances of audio and visual lag despite my internet having plenty of speed and being the only person on at the house at the time. The one window was convenient but the lack of customization for the individual sections within the window was disappointing. I could not increase the size of the presentation without going into full screen mode which then covered up the speaker video. I also was unable to separate any of the sections into their own windows which could have helped since the default presentation viewer was too small to effectively follow. I will admit that this review is written after only one use so maybe that is a feature that was simply unable to find.

Pros: I used this product when I was working at LACOE. I like the ease of functionality when working with larger groups, it looks very professional almost as if you were in an actual classroom. Participants can easily raise their hands, ask questions, and interact with the presenter. The presenter options are robust and it's a great program overall.

Cons: There's a pretty large learning curve, so its best to have someone to teach you to use it or have a Lynda.com account.

Pros: As an admin for our instance, the ability to customize the interface and brand it with our organization's colors is a nice feature. Though, it is not as intuitive as it could be to set your branding. Adding users and setting permissions is easy once you've done a few.

Cons: It just seems old. The interface and and icons could use a major refresh. The video quality isn't the best, and the user interaction needs to be rethought from the ground up.

Overall: Adobe Connect is a decent product for remote collaborations; however, there are better options out there. We used Adobe Connect recently for interviews. The quality of the video left a lot to be desired. The controls are confusing and it's very easy to accidentally stop sharing video. I would suggest comparing this product to Vidyo, BlueJeans, and Cisco WebEx

Recommendations to other buyers: Compare this product to Vidyo, WebEx, and BlueJeans before making a purchasing decision.
