Introducing the Public Preview of Project ROME, a Content Creation and Publishing Tool for Virtually Anyone

More of you want to use the power of digital media to express your ideas. You might want to create an interactive report complete with video and music, spice up presentations with animation and interactivity, craft a visual email with self-created graphics, or design and publish your first website for the world to see. But, you don’t know where to start.

Today, we’re excited to offer a first look into Project ROME, an all-in-one content creation and publishing application for use at home, work or school*. It is intended for virtually anyone who wants to add the power of video, audio, photos, graphics, text or animation into everyday projects — from printed materials and presentations to digital documents and websites. You can go from start-to-finish all in one simple, creative environment. And you can work on your files from virtually anywhere because Project ROME works as a desktop application or browser-based service.

Our goal is to make Project ROME so intuitive and fluid, that the technology doesn’t get in your way of expressing ideas with video, audio, photos, graphics, text and animation. The interface is clean and simple, yet powerful. Underneath is Adobe’s industry-standard technology at work but engineered in a way so that you can quickly and easily begin to use it. Project ROME is for those of us who aren’t professional designers, but want to express our ideas in a more powerful way using digital content.

For work, try creating a multimedia report or presentation to deliver your message with impact. How about creating your first family website with graphics, photos, sound, video and animation? Then, collaborate and share your projects with colleagues, clients, friends and family with Adobe® Acrobat.com or Google® Apps, or via social engines such as Twitter® and Facebook®.

Adobe is offering Project ROME as a free preview – a public beta. We invite you to check it out at http://rome.adobe.com.  We’re excited to get your input, so please tell us what you think.

For teachers, we made a special version for you to try – Project ROME for Education. It’s meant to help you enhance the learning experience and teach students how to communicate and express ideas and information in far more engaging ways.

You and your students can use Project ROME for Education individually or in a collaborative environment, sharing files through integrated services like Google® Apps or Moodle®, a learning management system – inside or outside the classroom. Project ROME for Education supports safe, secure use of content, which is particularly important in K12 student environments.

Please sign up to participate in a pilot of Project ROME for Education at http://rome.adobe.com/education.  We are excited to partner with large schools, districts and institutions to help your students realize critical 21st century skills.

Let’s remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Help us make Project ROME work for you. Show us what you can do.

 

* For K-12 student or classroom use, please use ‘Project ROME for Education’ – a separate offering designed for schools.
