Adobe Connect is a market-leading web conferencing solution that enables corporations and government agencies worldwide to improve collaboration, webinars, and eLearning through exceptionally rich interactions. Its latest release, Adobe Connect 9, delivers critical new capabilities to address challenges faced by many organizations initiating webinars, mobile learning, and mobile-to-mobile collaboration.
Webinars play a vital role in business and government today, as companies look to build stronger customer relationships and government agencies seek to better prepare staff for success on the job while enhancing citizen services. To maximize the impact of webinars, organizations are rethinking every phase of online event management, from preparing and promoting sessions and persuading people to take action, to applying lessons learned to maximize returns on future sessions.
Equally important, eLearning content - whether delivered live or on-demand - is increasingly consumed on a wide range of mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets. The explosion of devices, combined with the need to rapidly create and deliver engaging, high-impact courses, is putting a resource strain on all eLearning and training organizations because they need to help ensure their learning programs are accessible and run flawlessly anywhere, anytime on virtually any device.
Across webinars, eLearning, and ongoing collaboration, web conferencing demands today have moved well beyond traditional offices and have to address the requirements of individuals participating at any time from any location - without sacrificing the quality of the overall experience. At the same time, continued pressure on organizations to improve service delivery and reduce costs is further accelerating demand for more flexible, feature-rich web conferencing.
