The Adobe Connect family of products

Video: The Adobe Connect family of products

When I use the term Adobe Connect, I am actually talking about a family of products. What I would like to do is just describe that family so that you can understand the pieces of it. In the upcoming training, we'll cover each of them in some detail, so that you'll understand how to use them. But to get it started, I just want to introduce them to you. The first is the Connect Meeting. It's the main tool that you'll use to present information or host collaborative sessions via the web. Next is the Connect Desktop application. With it, you'll manage meetings and recordings directly from the desktop without having to use the meeting room or enter through the Connect portal.

For those of you who are on the go, there is the Connect Mobile application, which allows you to attend from your smart phone or tablet device. Then finally, the Connect admin portal, which is simply a web site that allows you to go in and administer Connect. For example, it allows you to create meetings and add users to the system that you can invite to your meetings. This group of tools in the Connect family all work together to allow you to do the things that we're going to cover in detail in the upcoming training.
