Adobe Education Heads to EDUCAUSE Plus Adobe Design Achievement Awards

Are you one of the 4000+ education professionals headed to Denver for EDUCAUSE 2012? If you are, I hope you’ll stop by Adobe’s booth — #701 – to join our presentations on IT deployment tools for Adobe Creative Suite 6, cross campus use cases, web analytics, digital publishing ideas for your campus, and much more. By visiting our booth Nov. 5-9, you’ll also have a chance to enter the Adobe Twitter challenge. All you have to do is watch a presentation, shoot a photo, tweet the photo, and you will be entered to win an Apple iPad (please see sweepstakes rules). And that’s not all: for every tweet, Adobe will donate $100 to the Kuali Foundation*, a non-profit organization that provides software for higher education institutions.

From Denver, the Adobe Education team will journey to Toronto, Canada, where we’ll announce the winners of our 12th annual Adobe Design Achievement Awards (ADAA). We’ll be  holding a special ceremony on November 9 at 5:00 p.m. ET as part of the DesignThinkers 2012 conference, with distinguished designers Sean Adams and Noreen Morioka serving as the Masters of Ceremonies. A total of 41 student and teacher finalists from all over the world are coming together to be recognized for their originality, educational innovation and skill in applying Adobe products. For those of you who can’t attend in person, the ceremony will be streamed live. Register to attend here.

We are so proud of the student and faculty achievements and feel privileged to be able to honor them through ADAAs. We are also looking forward to EDUCAUSE and a chance to talk and collaborate with all of you in an effort to create the next-generation educational environment. I hope to see and hear from you all!


*Adobe will donate a maximum of $10,000 USD
