Explore: A New Way to Learn Creative Cloud Apps

Adobe’s Creative Cloud Learn (CCL) team has been hard at work improving the user experience of our tutorials to make it even easier to learn the apps in Creative Cloud.

Most Creative Cloud apps have their own landing page showing all of the tutorials in a single view, with topics organized to reflect a logical flow that matches how people will likely work with the features in that app.

New Explore pages provide at-a-glance views of our tutorials.

The core of our content is under the Learn Essentials tab, but if you’re new to the products, the Get Started section is a great place to start. If you’re an experienced user looking to extend your expertise, the Key Techniques section consists of more advanced topics and introduces workflows between Creative Cloud applications.

There are a few ways to access the tutorials: One way is to select the Menu option at the top of most any page on Adobe.com. In the overlay that appears, click See All at the top right of the Products tab to see a listing of Creative Cloud products. Find the product you’re interested in, then click Learn & Support; from there, check out the featured content, or click Show All Tutorials to reveal more links.

We provide a variety of learning types so you can watch, read, and even do some projects to enhance your knowledge of the tools in Creative Cloud.

Once you access the Explore pages, hover over any tutorial title to find out more about the learning approach (read, watch, do project, etc.), the apps that are covered in the tutorial, and a description of what will be taught.

    Hi I read one article from AMD about the new graphics cards to support the new updates on creative cloud. It was not very clear if the hardware on the individual machines, like users machine needs to have those new graphics card to make full use of the new updates.
