  2. 2. © 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. Adobe Connect Pricing and Licensing – Explained in Plain English Adobe Connect pricing (or licensing) is probably near the top, if not at the top, of the list of complicated things to figure out. It is often either not properly explained or not properly understood and customers can get left with deployments that either don’t meet or grossly exceed their needs as a result. This is intended to help explain what all of the different licensing options are (how they work, limitations, advantages, etc.). If you are interested in pricing, feel free to contact us through our Adobe Connect Pricing page below. One thing to note is that Adobe does not sell Connect directly. It is only sold through partners. Adobe sets the retail pricing, so therefore, the price does not vary amongst partners. So choose a partner that is responsive, knowledgeable and provides the best training and customer support. Next -> Adobe Connect license types explained
  3. 3. © 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. Adobe Connect Pricing and Licensing – Explained in Plain English Adobe Connect Meetings Meeting Host License: A Meeting Host license is assigned to a staff member within your organization to be able to schedule/host unlimited meetings with up to 100 connections per meeting. One meeting at a time per host license. Attendees and co-presenters do NOT need a license. Anyone can join and the meeting host can make anyone a presenter (as many as you’d like). A Meeting Host license may be reassigned from one individual to another staff member anytime. This is currently the most popular licensing model. Adobe Connect Webinars Named Webinar Manager (NWM): A NWM license is assigned to a staff member within your organization to be able to schedule/host unlimited Webinars with up to 100, 500, or 1,000 connections per Webinar. One webinar at a time per named webinar manager. A Named Webinar Manager license may be reassigned from one individual to another staff member anytime. NWM licenses include all of the same features as the Meeting Host license with the added ability to access to the Events Management features. Event Management includes the ability to create custom attendee registration landing pages so that attendees can self-register, receive confirmation email and reminders. View a demo video. Shared Webinar Manager (SWM) – Includes the same features as the NWM license, however, this option is geared towards organizations that have a lot of staff members that need a to be able to schedule and “host” (not attend) webinars. The SWM license is not tied to any person and allows anyone in the company to schedule and host webinars. One webinar at a time per shared webinar room license. Available capacities are; 500, 1,000 and 1,500 connections per meeting.
  4. 4. © 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. Adobe Connect Pricing and Licensing – Explained in Plain English Adobe Connect eLearning Live Virtual Classrooms – Named Virtual Classroom Manager (NVCM): With this licensing, a Named Virtual Classroom Manager can create and run a Virtual Classroom (which has a “live” instructor) at any given time with up to 200 attendees. The NVCM can also create Courses within the Training Module of Connect, but they will only be able to be delivered within a Virtual Classroom as synchronous (meaning live) training. The NVCM license also comes with access to the Events Management features. Event Management includes the ability to create custom attendee registration landing pages so that attendees can self-register, receive confirmation email and reminders – view a demo video. For example, a NVCM can create a curriculum that includes several live online classes that must be attended and completed by the trainee. The trainee can enroll online and attend the classes. The NVCM can track registration and attendance, access reporting, test, grade, etc. On-Demand Training – Concurrent Learner: The concurrent learner license allows trainers to deploy curriculum and/or courses online for asynchronous (on-demand or not live) training delivery. Any enrolled students will have their results tracked via the lightweight Learning Management System (LMS) functionality that Adobe Connect offers. The concurrent learner license is NOT tied to any particular person or trainee. Unlimited Curriculum’s and/or Courses can be created, and you can enroll an unlimited amount of users, but you are capped at how many concurrent licenses you have. So if you have 1,000 enrollees and only 100 Concurrent Learner licenses, only 100 enrollees can be tracked at any given time, and the remaining enrollees will have the ability to engage in the training content and have their results tracked once the one of the enrollees have completed the training and are no longer accessing the training content. Note: Concurrent Learner and Named Virtual Classroom Manager licensing can co-exist on any Connect deployment. If you have both, then the ability to deliver both synchronous and non-synchronous training will be available.
