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.
Adobe Connect 9.7.5, coming in Early March, brings with it a set of exciting improvements to both the Adobe Connect application and Adobe Connect Central. In this release we focused our efforts on further transitioning towards HTML5 within the administrator console and improving the login process, audio output selection, the installer, and much more.
Each year, the Adobe Connect team recognizes a key partner organization which has excelled at providing exceptional value to our shared customers through Adobe Connect solutions. Awards are handed out for each of three categories: North American Partner of the Year, International Partner of the Year, and Government Partner of the Year. For each category, the team nominates three partners and votes on the winner. We are pleased to announce the nominees and winners for the 2017 partners of the year.

Today we announced, with the support of many of our technology partners including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Mozilla, that Adobe plans to end-of-life the Flash Player by the end of 2020. The significant progress that has been made on the open web in terms of standards, capabilities, and maturity makes us feel confident that they will ultimately provide a viable alternative for Flash content in the browser moving forward.
