We’ve been tempting you with sneak peeks for the last few weeks and today we made the exciting announcement that the Adobe® Creative Cloud™ Student and Teacher Edition, and Adobe Creative Suite® 6 will be available for institutions, educators and students next month!

This new release comes with supporting educational resources designed to schools and colleges to enhance their classes and better prepare students for the workplace.

We are extremely excited about this new release which we consider to be groundbreaking. More than 100 education institutions worldwide participated in the beta programme for CS6 and Creative Cloud – here’s what some of our UK Adobe Education Leaders have to say;

“Adobe CS6 is a revolutionary product release that gives me and my students the opportunity to create real-world projects with tools that are, quite simply, the best in the world. Having access to these products means my students are a step ahead of most of their peers when they start their careers. With the economy still recovering from recession and the demands on today’s workforce so great, it is imperative that young people have experience in using technology in order to succeed. These tools are an important part of that. For my students to have the same power at their fingertips as real producers creating major motion pictures is truly amazing.”

                Renaldo Lawrence, Advanced Skills teacher, St. John the Baptist School

 “Adobe Creative Suite 6 has evolved to the next level and will empower my students to be even more creative. The whole suite has become much more integrated, so experience in one programme will now make it much easier for myself and my students to use the entire suite. The Adobe Touch Apps and the Creative Cloud means my students can now use a tablet as a great prototyping tool. They can design and plan on their tablet, then upload to the Creative Cloud, and in an instant their design appears in Dreamweaver for additional coding and development. Brilliant!”

Andrew Field, Head of ICT, Neale-Wade Community College

 The Student and Teacher Edition of Adobe Creative Cloud will be available for £18.26 (ex VAT) per month based on annual membership. For information on Adobe licensing go to www.adobe.com/uk/aboutadobe/volumelicensing/education.

Muse Beta 6: new update available

A couple of weeks ago we released a new update to our Muse public beta software. From now on when you download the beta, you’ll have access to more than 80 new updates and performance enhancements all based on feedback we’ve had from the user community since the beta launched last summer.

In a nutshell, Muse is our latest Web design software which essentially lets you design and publish a HTML site without having to write the code. The use of tools such as Muse, and in fact technology across the board, should be encouraged in our Higher Education institutions.

It is important that young people today are given the opportunity to learn about technology and how it can be used to tell a story in more creative way, whether in the classroom or when they start their careers. Muse is just one way they can do this.

So what can you expect from our latest updates to Muse? The beta now includes autoscrolling, so when you drag an item to the edge of the view, the view automatically scrolls in that direction. Plus export and publish times have been improved so they’re now much quicker and easier. There’s loads more so check out our Muse Blog to get all the details.

If you want to learn more about how you can use Muse in your lecturers then it’s worth a visit to our site where you can download the beta for free, take a look through a gallery of Muse-created websites, and also access instructional tutorials.
