Adobe looks like they’re going to try to do their part to help students stuck at home during the COVID-19 outbreak.
And one of those things is to make Creative Cloud free to use. It’s pretty savvy business when you think about it, but it’s also a huge money-saver for a lot of people.
Adobe isn’t just giving free subscriptions to the software suite during the crisis, but they’re also letting students and teachers teleconference via Adobe Connect.
“Starting today, we’re giving our higher education and K-12 institutional customers globally — who currently make Creative Cloud apps available to students who login through on-campus labs — the ability to request temporary “at-home” access for their students and educators. This will be granted through May 31, 2020 at no additional cost. To learn more and request access, please follow this link.
We also know that delivering engaging experiences through distance learning is a new paradigm for many teachers and faculty. Through our community, we’ve curated resources to help educators and school leaders discover inspiring projects, best practices, and new ideas so they can continue to drive valuable learning in virtual environments. For more information on Adobe’s distance learning resources please click here.
Adobe also has a vital role to play in schools, businesses, and government agencies, and earlier this week we began to offer free 90-day access to Adobe Connect, our web conferencing solution, until July 1, 2020. This offer gives users the ability to join meetings, trainings, and virtual classrooms from the safety of their homes. To learn more, please check out the Adobe Connect blog here.”
