Features for Virtual Classrooms - Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro
Easily create and customize virtual classrooms
Easily manage virtual classrooms
Easily schedule virtual classrooms, invite attendees, and set access permissions. Set up rooms specific to the subject, audience, or presenter. Assign persistent rooms for recurring classes and control who has access to content. Get detailed reports on learner progress and attendance.
Customize virtual classroom layouts
Use customizable tabs to organize class flow and content. Easily select and arrange content windows for each layout.
Save layouts as templates for future reuse
Virtual classroom layouts and content can be saved as reusable templates for personal or systemwide use. Content saved in a template becomes instantly available in new classrooms created from that template.
Use the same URL every time
Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro virtual classrooms are always available and easy to access through custom URLs, which never change. Your custom virtual classroom layouts and content, complete with notes and chat, are automatically saved from one meeting to the next, helping to reduce setup time.
Brand your virtual classroom
Customize the look and feel of your virtual classroom with your corporate logo and colors.
Create custom windows
To facilitate active collaboration for more effective and engaging web seminars, meetings, and virtual classrooms, use the Collaboration Builder SDK to create custom windows.
Conduct high-impact virtual classroom sessions
Share your screen
As a trainer, you can choose to share your screen at three levels: window, application, or your entire desktop. You can synchronize the view of all participants and expand the viewing area for shared applications, documents, and whiteboards to fill the participants' entire screen.
Upload and share just about anything
Acrobat Connect Pro provides full support for Adobe Flash movies, animations, streaming video and audio, high-resolution graphics, Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, and Adobe Captivate® simulations, allowing participants to view and interact with rich media as a group or at their own pace.
Use breakout rooms to focus discussions
Within your virtual classroom, you can create multiple discussion sessions, or breakout rooms. Each breakout includes its own private VoIP or telephony audio channel. Use a default template or create custom layouts for each room, and provide specific content appropriate for each breakout. As the host, you can monitor all breakouts, move easily between them, and broadcast messages to all participants across room boundaries. When it's time to bring the groups back together, you can easily review discussion session content with the entire group in the shared main room.
Get immediate feedback with polling
Easily create polls and track responses immediately. Use the feedback to guide the course of classes to ensure the content and pace suit learners' needs and interests. After the class, you can download polling data for further analysis and reporting.
Prepare content behind the scenes
As a trainer, you can create or modify a classroom layout or upload content in Preparation mode, and changes will not be displayed to participants until Preparation mode is deactivated.
Share multimedia with low bandwidth
With the Optimize Screen Sharing feature in the Meeting menu, learners can select "Fast Images" to enable very low bandwidth consumption when screen sharing fast-moving multimedia and video. This feature is also known as Turbo Screen Sharing.
Communicate with whiteboarding and annotation tools
Annotate over content and blank whiteboards using standard tools or your own custom annotation shapes. Save whiteboard overlays in persistent Acrobat Connect Pro meeting rooms and add to them in future classes.
Control "Voice Talk" features to minimize chatter
As the trainer in the virtual classroom, you can hover and click on a participant to enable and disable VoIP access. Users can control their own individual volume and speaking mode with an easy-to-use menu.
Moderate Q&A sessions
Conduct chat-based question-and-answer sessions, with complete control over question queue, visibility, and question delegation.
Collaborate in real time with other presenters
Multiple presenters can conduct behind-the-scenes content preparation, whiteboarding, private chat, and layout customization while the class is in progress. Participants cannot see any of the windows shared in the presenter-only area.
See who's in your virtual classroom
Use standard USB or FireWire webcams for high-quality videoconferencing, with support for multiple simultaneous video attendees.
Use the Internet as a phone
Acrobat Connect Pro provides the highest quality Internet audio (VoIP) and offers an easy audio setup wizard, echo and noise cancellation, and silence detection, which eliminates the need for a "push to talk" feature.
Control audio conference calls
Directly from within your meeting room and with no need for a reservation, you can dial out to participants, mute/unmute and hold/unhold participants' phone lines, eject participants, and view the active speaker. There's a single interface for scheduling web and phone conferences, along with synchronized web and phone conferencing audio recordings. This feature is available via Premiere Global Services, Cisco MeetingPlace, and Avaya.
Record meetings for future playback
Record meeting audio, including integrated teleconferencing and VoIP. Capture participant interactions via chat, polling, whiteboarding, and rich media. A built-in streaming server can optimize bandwidth for individual viewers. Viewers can use the meeting index to navigate to the most relevant content quickly, and all content remains interactive during playback.
Edit recordings to streamline content
As the meeting manager, you can use intuitive, online tools to create an edited version of an archived meeting or virtual classroom session. Remove unwanted sections of the recording using mark-in and mark-out points. The original version remains untouched and can be retrieved in its unedited state.
Download recordings for playback offline
While online viewing is the most common way to watch a recording, you can also provide the option for offline viewing. Simply save your recording in the FLV format and then anyone can download the file and watch it using any media player that supports FLV, such as Adobe Media Player software.
Effectively manage and track learner progress
Track learner performance within virtual classrooms
Tracker learners' participation and quiz scores for course credit within the virtual classroom. Acrobat Connect Pro offers the unique capability to allow individual learners to view and interact with simulations and quizzes at their own pace. Trainers can answer questions in real time, helping to create an effective and supportive learning environment. Reporting tools give trainers a clear view into learners' progress, without their having to spends hours grading assignments after class time.
