Adobe Generation: nurture young creative talent with new online courses for UK students

Following a successful pilot in May, we’ve decided to expand Adobe Generation, and today we’re announcing the roll-out of three new Adobe Generation courses.

Adobe Generation is a series of free online courses (each lasting nine weeks), designed to help UK students (aged 14-19) develop key skills that will help them in a range of creative careers. Teachers wanting to develop their own digital skills are also welcome to join Adobe Generation.

Details of the Adobe Generation courses are as follows:

  • Games Design – will run each Monday from 1st October – 26th November at 7- 8pm
  • Animation- will run each Tuesday from 2nd October – 27th November at 7- 8pm
  • Photo Imaging – will run each Thursday from 4th October – 29th November at 7- 8pm

Sessions for each course will be led by different creative experts so students will hear straight from the horse’s mouth about each field and how they can develop specific skills. We have a whole raft of exciting guest speakers lined up – including the creative geniuses behind A-Ha’s ‘Take On Me’ video and animated favourite Shaun the Sheep!

Each session will be taught online using Adobe Connect and will give attendees the skills they’d need to go on to become a games designer on the next Call of Duty blockbuster or producer of the next big Hollywood blockbuster. Students will also be set weekly challenges, with prizes being given out to the best student work.

So if you want to be part of the Adobe Generation, I strongly recommend you to sign up early at www.adobegeneration.com.
