The solution consists of the following three components: • Adobe Connect for Web Meetings addresses a full range of online meeting needs, from simple screen sharing to mission-critical, real-time collaboration, and allows your teams to work more efficiently, increasing productivity and helping reduce costs. • Adobe Connect for eLearning provides novices and experts alike with the capability to create and deliver compelling, self-paced online courses, conduct highly interactive virtual classes, and efficiently manage training programs. • Adobe Connect for Webinars enables organizations to increase attendance, boost response rates, and generate more interest through rich, engaging, highly interactive online events.

There is a limit of 100 attendees per meeting. • Hosting is provided by Adobe on their servers.
