Custom Experiences

Adobe Connect gives you complete control over the look and functionality of your virtual rooms. Create experiences that incorporate branding and content. Position functional pods anywhere on the screen to share content or interact. 

Layouts

Only Adobe Connect features layouts - pre-set groupings of pods that determine what is shown on the screen at any time. Layouts can be customized by the host and are ideal for structuring a classroom, webinar, or meeting.

Content Persistence

Adobe Connect goes beyond letting you re-use a URL. The content in your Adobe Connect room is also persistent. This makes it easy to re-use content like presentations, videos, polls, and more across multiple sessions - saving time and ensuring consitency. This persistence also enables you to setup your virtual environment days or weeks ahead of time.
