    named training learners" versus "training Concurrent learners" ?


      What is the difference between " named training learners" and "training Concurrent learners?  If we have individuals that would like to access a class that we do not care to track, are they named training learners?   Any info is appreciated.  Thanks

          Named training learners is an old licensing model that hasn't been used in years. So you only need to worry about Concurrent Learner licenses, if you need the Training module. Think of the Concurrent Learners license like a room full of chairs/desks. If you have a room with 50 licenses, then anyone who is enrolled in any training on your account can come in and take the training, but only 50 individuals can at one time. So the licenses are first come, first serve.


          If you don't need to track individuals viewing objects, you should just distribute your content from within the Content library. You would just need to have Content Publisher/Author licenses to push content to the Content library, and there are no license limitations on accessing/viewing your content. You can even make content publicly viewable, so you don't have to deal with people needing a username and password to access your content.


          If you just need to have a live meeting space for students to meet with an instructor, you should only need the Meeting Module, and you would most likely be looking at the Named Host licensing model, which allows you to name individuals (instructors most likely) that can create and run meetings that hold up to 100 individuals.


          If you need more clarification on connect licensing (and don't feel bad if you do, it is complicated), you may want to take a few minutes to read our posting about what the Connect licensing options are and how they work: http://www.realeyes.com/blog/2012/04/17/adobe-connect-licensing/

            Thanks again – just another quick clarification – we have a 5 seat concurrent learner license – we have a group of users (20-50)  that we want to be able to access the program on their own time and at their own pace.  My understanding is that I can list all 50 individuals as concurrent learners but if more than 5 are trying to be in the session at the same time, it will prevent the 6th from entering the course….  Is that close to what  will happen?

              Yes, that is what will happen. They should get a message that is similar to "The licensing limitation for this account has been reached. Please try again in a few minutes."
