Last week, we discussed extensibility as the future of web conferencing. Well for some, the future is already here. Jennifer Wicks, Executive Producer at California State University Chancellor’s Office, recently talked to us about how the university, in partnership with Refined Data Solutions, uses Adobe Connect in combination with extensions from Refined Data Solutions to deliver engaging, high-impact online meetings to CSU campuses across the state. With Adobe Connect, CSU saved more than $1 million on travel-related expenses and reduced carbon emissions by more than 600,000 metric tons over a two-year period. The Chancellor’s Office has also seen dramatic improvement in real-time interaction and collaboration among dispersed administrators and faculty.
For the CSU Chancellor’s Office, Adobe Connect provides seamless, reliable access to online meetings that include high-quality videos and interactive participation—without requiring participants to download additional hardware or software. The dynamic solution can also communicate in real-time the environmental benefits of each online meeting in session.

We appreciate the conversation on extensibility so far, and look forward to continuing it – including additional posts here in the coming weeks.
