Adobe Applications for Education

We’re pleased to announce that we have published a unique resource – “Adobe Apps for Education” – that seeks to give our customers and partners an introduction to Adobe software applications, learn what they can create, and get inspired with ideas (and tutorials) for sample projects using these tools. Our Adobe Education Leaders asked us to create this and we have responded with what we hope will be an extremely useful resource.

This is a great resource to reference when you’re talking to customers about the benefits and uses of Adobe software in Education and when answering the question “How do I learn to use your software to create?”

The resource will be available exclusively on the Adobe Education Exchange and is published in three different formats (low resolution interactive PDF for the web, high resolution interactive PDF for the web, and print PDF).

Check it out here: http://edex.adobe.com/resource/d-ad73/

Here’s the low resolution version: Adobe_Apps_for_Education_lores

And, here’s an example of what you will find on the Education Exchange:

I’m excited to announce that yesterday afternoon we launched a new show on Adobe TV focused on helping students create their personal brand and go beyond the resume by using Adobe software to package their work in engaging portfolios for PDF, the web, print, and the iPad.

Check out the new show here: http://tv.adobe.com/show/adobe-and-your-voice/

A few highlights about these resources:

  • 14 episode series with 4 sections:
    • Create a personal brand (logo, business card, and poster)
    • Create a PDF Portfolio
    • Create a web portfolio
    • Create an InDesign portfolio for output to print, PDF, and the iPad
  • All episodes have sample assets to go with them so students can actually use the files to follow along with the tutorials and then create their own brand
  • We have a really cool working iPad version of the final student portfolio as an example.
