With Adobe being the go to software for creatives everywhere, it’s a great idea to introduce the key applications into schools and get your students clued up on the industry-standard tech, before they leave education and enter the world of work. Here are our top ten reasons for bringing Adobe into education…
1. Ensure your students are industry ready
Being Creative Cloud literate is an essential workplace skill for anyone looking to work in the creative industry. So by starting young and introducing students to this industry-standard software, you’re giving them the best possible head start for when they leave school and enter the world of work. In comparison to running Creative Suite 6, Creative Cloud updates are available and accessible as soon as they’re ready, so your students will be well clued up and in the know with key applications like Photoshop CC and Illustrator CC.
2. Collaborate more efficiently
Each seat on your Complete Named User Licence plan comes with 100GB of cloud storage – five times more than with an individual membership – for file sharing, versioning, and anytime access to every project from one place. With students being able to save their work to the cloud, they aren’t confined to one specific machine; they can access their work across a range of devices, both desktop and mobile.
3. Grow your students creative skills and develop their portfolios
Access the entire Adobe library of video tutorials that make learning new apps easy and give your students the responsibility to conduct their learning independently, allowing them to take control and research areas of particular interest to them.
4. Get one-on-one support from Adobe product experts
Have questions? Want to learn something new? Adobe Creative Cloud for teams includes two free one-on-one phone calls with an Adobe product expert per user each year. Note: This is for named users only. To find out more about the different licensing options for education, visit our page here.
5. Access a high-quality library of curated creative content
Give your class access to a free collection of over 30,000 curated assets for creatives with Creative Cloud Market, available on both desktop and mobile devices. Again, Market is for named users only.
6. Create and collaborate from anywhere
Your class can work whenever, wherever, with all-new mobile apps that are tightly integrated with the latest Adobe creative tools. Students can start work on Photoshop CC on desktop computers then pick up the same project on iPad with new mobile CC apps like Photoshop Mix and Photoshop Sketch. This only really applies to named users as any work students do from CC apps is synched via the cloud.
7. Always stay on budget
Annual plans offer flexibility and stability. Licence Adobe’s complete collection of creative tools or single apps. Both named users or device licences provide you with flexibility to select your own renewal date to coincide with budgets.
8. Simplify your software management
Add or reassign seats anytime with the easy-to-use admin console, and deploy apps and updates your way with Creative Cloud Packager. Named users only!
9. Discover top creatives with Adobe Creative Talent Search
Give your students access to the work of designers, illustrators, artists, and more to use as inspiration for their own work using the Creative Talent Search in Behance. Named licence users can also upload their own portfolios of work to Behance and share their ideas with far more people than a class of 30.
10. Champion creativity with students and staff
Creative Cloud for teams gets better all the time. Take pride in seeing your students excel and be top of the class while continuing to push the limits of their creative possibility.
