The beauty of Adobe Acrobat Connect



Formerly known as Macromedia Breeze, Adobe Connect is a software used to create information and general presentations, online training materials, web conferencing, learning modules, and user desktop sharing. The product is entirely Adobe Flash based. All meeting workspaces are organized into ‘pods’; with each pod performing a specific role (i.e. chat, whiteboard, note, etc.)

You can rapidly create content, deploy custom training programs that mix and reuse a variety of training activities. Create self-paced courses right from Microsoft PowerPoint using Adobe® Presenter software. You can also capture screen recordings or create interactive simulations using Adobe Captivate® software. You can also record an Adobe Acrobat® Connect™ Pro Virtual Classroom session and download and edit it for reuse as a self-paced course. Curriculums can also include external events, such as management assessments. You can track training progress and generate training reports.
