Adobe Announces Major Update to Creative Cloud and New Licensing Program for Education Institutions
As you may have already heard, today at Adobe MAX, the Creativity Conference, Adobe announced a significant update to Adobe Creative Cloud, the company’s flagship offering for creatives. Available in June and packed with new features, Creative Cloud reimagines the creative process through a stunning set of Creative Cloud desktop applications (“CC” apps) and sophisticated cross-device collaboration and publishing capabilities. Creative files can be stored, synced and shared, via Creative Cloud; and Behance, the world’s leading online creative community, is now integrated with Creative Cloud, so customers can showcase work, get feedback on projects and gain global exposure. For education, this means keeping a competitive edge and providing students and educators with access to the latest tools for college and career success.
This update to Creative Cloud includes the next generation of Adobe desktop applications—including Adobe Photoshop® CC, InDesign® CC, Illustrator® CC, Dreamweaver® CC and Premiere® Pro CC. Adobe’s desktop tools, previously known as Creative Suite (CS), are now branded CC to reflect that they are an integral part of Creative Cloud and have been reinvented to support a more intuitive, connected way of creating. Adobe Creative Cloud includes more than 30 tools and services that enable professional grade content creation and delivery across print, web, mobile apps, video and photography.
New Licensing Program for Education
Also today, Adobe announced a new licensing option for primary, secondary, and higher education institutions. The Education Enterprise Agreement (EEA) program is an easy-to-manage, term-based licensing program that gives educational institutions access to the new CC apps. With this program, institutional customers can have the creative tools they need to be more productive, foster creativity in teaching and learning, and help their students develop essential digital communication skills.
Additional ways students, educators and institutions can purchase Creative Cloud:
- Creative Cloud for individual—includes a membership offer for individual use by students and teachers available on Adobe.com and through authorized resellers.
- Creative Cloud for enterprise—provides the best coverage model for institution-wide access to Creative Cloud apps and services under an Enterprise Term Licensing Agreement (ETLA).
