I’m thrilled to share that Adobe has announced an amazing competition for students and teachers ages 13 and up. It’s an awesome chance to strut your creative stuff and compete for fantastic big money prizes. Top prize is $2000 with a $1000 second prize and a $500 third prize.
Now money can be good. It can even be awesome. But what’s really awesome about this contest is that participants will get a chance to show off their creativity, and express their ideas about a social issue that matters to them. In this contest, entrants will create a short video (using the new Adobe Presenter Video Creator) that explains how they would Change the World for the better. It’s a great opportunity to let others hear your ideas and to demonstrate your creative abilities. Wouldn’t you love a chance to share your ideas and compete for big cash prizes? How about the people you know? You should share this article with your kids, your friends, your family and colleagues. (Hint, hint)
Check out this video to learn more about the competition.

When we use PowerPoint as an authoring environment, we end up making our courses look like presentations, as the default slide designs and layouts we have at our disposal are very few. Moreover these layouts are specifically designed for presentations and not for creating eLearning content. But not anymore!
With the all new Adobe Presenter 8, you have the freedom to choose a perfect layout that exactly matches your eLearning content type. You can seamlessly use these layouts with scenes, characters, images, and animations to bring your eLearning courses to life. These layouts are specially designed to be used for eLearning courses and adapt neatly with the design theme you have used to create your Adobe Presenter course.
