What does leadership mean to you? Warren Bennis defined leadership as “The capacity to translate vision into reality”. That’s exactly what our product teams have been doing heads down in the past year, and it’s gratifying to see this show in the voice of our customers.
When it began offering Executive MBA (EMBA) courses online in 2004, Saint Mary’s College of California became a pioneer of virtual education. The program gave working professionals a combination of convenience and in-person interaction by blending virtual and in-classroom learning. Saint Mary’s award-winning EMBA program has since become a model for other institutions.Recently, the liberal arts college implemented Adobe Connect as its preferred online conferencing platform.
Today Adobe launches a new online purchasing experience for Adobe Connect, servicing most countries in the North American, European, Middle Eastern and African markets.
Over the past several months significant speculation has been brewing around the influence HTML5 and WebRTC might have on the web conferencing space.
We’re happy to announce the latest release of the Adobe Connect mobile client, available now for iOS and Android. One of the key trends we see as we talk to our customers is that the usage of mobile is increasing across their user bases – and the expectation continues to move well beyond the ability to join a web conferencing session, but fully host, present, and interact – whether it is a virtual training session, a collaborative meeting, or large webinar.
When thinking of moving an activity that is traditionally done in a physical setting to a virtual format – such as new-hire onboarding or training, there is sometimes a perception that the activity will be significantly less effective, or can not easily be replicated when brought online. And this is for good reason – a critical best practice we have observed in keeping an audience engaged, is to get them to participate.
