Ancient civilizations used Adobe to build houses which led to the building of communities. The low cost of using mud and straw to build infrastructure was accessible to the masses. Today, modern educators are using Adobe to build educational communities and web infrastructure for the future. The mud and straw has been replaced with air, clouds, and Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro. The low cost of a Hosted Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro account will make a tremendous impact and improvement on any school district. The technology delivered from Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro can bring in new tools and services to a school organization. One low cost Hosted Acrobat Connect Pro account resource can be spread across a school district to: build a help desk system, allow for online meetings with telephone integration and recording capabilities, long-distance interviewing for new positions for the district office or school buildings, online professional development, online training, live recordings of teacher lectures posted to the web for students who are sick or need extra help, digital newsletter, web presentations, software trainings and simulations, collaboration and sharing of expertise beyond school district boundaries. I would encourage every educator to use Adobe to build a new place for learning, growing, and help students strive for excellence. Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro is the modern building block, so roll up your sleeves, reach for the sky, and start building a new educational community for the future.

    I never thought I would agree with this opinion, but I’m starting to see things differently.

    Thanks for your comment! It took me a number of years to see the real value of using Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro. I have done hundreds of online meetings now and realized it can be used in many different kinds of situations. I almost use my hosted Connect Pro Account every day now. I travel less and connect with many more people.
