More Adobe Connect Pros »

"Document loading and annotation.""The solution allows me to connect and collaborate with my classes."

More Blackboard Collaborate Pros »

Cons
"We would like to see support for exportable files that have been uploaded into Adobe Connect as templates for activities.""Interface and layout options could be improved."

More Adobe Connect Cons »

"The system can overload when too many try logging in.""If there were maybe more tutorials outside of what I'm aware the university is suggesting, I would take more tutorials on effective ways to deliver content. I come from the industry and content was always needed when people that were observing were smart and involved and decision-makers instead of so passively just trying to pass the course. In my imagination, the tutorials would be a tool where the learners themselves can have much more hands-on learning during a Collaborate session."
