The technology world is evolving… again.
Looking at the rate at which technology is progressing, are we getting close to the “technology singularity”? The world where artificial intelligence lives. Maybe, maybe not, but one thing is for certain, we are now in an age where technology is no longer confined to the office.
Mobile technology is revolutionizing the way we live. The number of smartphone users globally has already topped one billion. Smartphone sales now exceed feature phone sales. Businesses must ensure they remain on the pulse of the needs of the new mobile consumer in order to make the most of the opportunity.
Did you know that we have been supporting cross-platform and mobile technology for several years now? Specific to to Education, join or even deliver a training session directly from a mobile device. Provide learners the freedom to access virtual classrooms from a range of mobile devices, as well as instant desktop access with no client downloads.
In fact, mobile collaboration utilizes technologies enabling effective collaboration independent of location. As an example, where traditional video conferencing has been limited to boardrooms, offices, and lecture theatres, recent technological advancements have extended the capabilities of video conferencing for use with discreet, hand-held mobile devices, permitting true mobile collaborative possibilities
Complete Mobile Collaboration
Fully host, present, and collaborate on virtually any mobile device – including iOS, Android, and BlackBerry PlayBook. Begin and end meetings, advance slides and control animations, share documents and other media-rich content, take shared notes, run polls, and drive meetings with active tools and pods.
Participants Join Meetings Instantly
Be confident that invitees will be able to join your meetings easily, without needing an additional download. In many cases, it is because Adobe Flash® Player software is already installed on virtually all Internet-connected computers.
Allow even first-time users to actively participate in meetings without training. As an example, Adobe Connect® makes sophisticated capabilities visible to users as they need them, reducing the potential for confusion when attempting simple tasks.
Share a variety of content types including animated presentations, images, audio, video, and more. Because anyone in your meeting is already using Adobe Flash Player, attendees can view any content without additional plug-ins.
The Bottom Line Is
Newest generation hand-held electronic devices feature video, audio, and telestration (on-screen drawing) capabilities broadcast over secure networks, enabling multi-party conferencing in real time – although real time communication is not a strict requirement of mobile collaboration and may not be applicable or practical in many collaboration scenarios.
