While we continue to add to our Resource Center, there are a number of other great resources out there for you to help you get the most out of Connect Pro. I always like to learn as much as I can about a product I use, so thought I’d point you to a few resources that will help you do just that.
First, if you haven’t been to our online user community – ConnectUsers.com – I highly encourage you to do so. We launched it in September of 2007. There has been quite a bit of activity on our forums, and there a number of tutorials available for you there. It’s a great place to see how others are using Connect Pro and to gain access to expertise from other users, Connect partners and the Connect Pro team. I also think the Adobe Connect User Group AsiaPac does a great job at highlighting and organizing some key resources and documentation to help you get started and learn best practices.
I am quite impressed by the extensive community site that Penn State University created for their Connect Pro users. No doubt it’s led to great adoption of their program. If you’re trying to help drive adoption at your organization, you might want to consider creating something similar.
YouTube has a number of Connect Pro training videos posted…try searching on “Adobe Connect Pro” or “Acrobat Connect Pro”. My personal favorite isn’t actually a training video, but an interesting use case — a music group broadcast a performance over Connect Pro. Check it out — http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfdu9z9ua0Q
