Comments from some of those who selected Adobe Connect as one of their Top Tools 

“I’ve just completed an in-house learning program on how to effectively facilitate live virtual learning through Adobe Connect and I’m pretty excited about its potential. Interestingly if it’s done in the right way it can be more engaging for learners than face-to-face training and it forces you to be more succinct and focused on the key learning goals in your training as you can’t really run long Adobe Connect sessions effectively. It’s still formal learning but it enables small/short formal learning which is more preferred and has more uptake than longer sessions” Fleur Mouchemore, 2015
